Hoylake RNLI volunteers launched their Shannon class all-weather lifeboat shortly after 8:50am today (Friday). The search is coordinated by HM Coastguard.

The alarm was first raised yesterday morning for the missing vessel. Yesterday, seven RNLI lifeboats joined the multi-agency search, with some lifeboat out for nearly 12 hours at sea. Llandudno, Rhyl, Conwy, Beaumaris and Hoylake RNLI volunteers joined volunteer Coastguard teams and other emergency services in the search which lasted until 10pm last night.
