Yarmouth Coastguard requested the launch of Hunstanton Hovercraft at 6.00pm on Thursday 26th July to assist the police in searching for a missing 12 year old girl, last seen on the beach at Hunstanton.
Hunstanton volunteer crew launched at 6.15pm and were searching along the tide line from the station towards Hunstanton when it was reported that the girl had been found and was safe and OK. This was the second such incident that the Hovercraft has been requested to attend this week. Several children have been reported missing during this spell of hot weather, but have been located before a full scale search has been started.
With the beaches crowded during this hot spell we ask that parents should be extra vigilant, and keep a close watch on their youngsters, and have a safe holiday.
