A huge search operation was launched in the early hours of this morning to find a 'high risk' missing person.

Wyke Coastguard Rescue was paged at 4.20am to help Portland Bill coastguards and the Dorset Police NPAS helicopter in the search.

Areas around Chesil Cove were searched, including Chesil Beach, while crew in Weymouth's all-weather lifeboat conducted a shoreline search.

A Wyke Coastguard spokesman said: "The casualty made his way back home 90 or so minutes into the search."
