Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Date: Sunday 12th May 2013

Wind: WSW 4 -5
Visibility: Good
Sea state: Moderate
Time of launch: 1141hrs
Time of return: 1300hrs

Boats launched: ILB

Reason: Amble ILB was requested to launch after a member of the public reported what appeared to be a black object in the water 1/4 to 1/2 mile East of the Alnmouth estuary. Once on scene the ILB commenced a search of the area but with nothing found after an hour searching, was released to return to station. The ILB was reuested to keep a look out when returning to station but again nothing was found and this was recorded as a false alarm with good intent.
