1:00pm Thursday 24th January 2013 in News
POLICE and Coastguards searched for a man in Lyme Regis following concern for his welfare.
The police helicopter, police officers, police dogs and the Lyme Regis Coastguard Rescue Team were yesterday looking for a 41-year-old man, concentrating their search in the Ware Cliff area.
A Dorset Police spokesman said: “We have got a concern for welfare for a 41-year-old man. I believe he is from out of the county but believed to be possibly in the area.
“He is not dangerous, just a concern for welfare. They are searching Lyme Regis as a whole at the moment.”
Police and coastguards searched thick undergrowth in the Ware Cliff area and assembled at Holmbush car park to co-ordinate the search.
Lyme Regis RNLI lifeboat was launched at around 2pm to join in the search.
