Yesterday evening shortly before 17.30hrs the emergency paging system for the Boyne Fishermen's Rescue and Recovery Service was activated requesting the teams assistance with a high risk missing persons search in the Drogheda / Tullyallen area.

As our various teams began to muster a brief was given including description and areas of interest.

We dispatched a inshore rescue boat and our 3 mobile units to various locations and areas of interest in both Tullyallen and Drogheda.

A short time later a second inshore rescue boat was launched to assist with the search late into the night.

Throughout the night we had a mobile unit and crew assisting in various search areas such as woodland and farm land etc.

At 06.00am which was first light the inshore rescue boat was re launched to do a search at the low tide mark,while a short time later crews were on the way to check a area of interest we received a update the missing persons was located safe and well.

Crews were stood down returning to base to wash,restage and fuel the equipment.
