Withernsea Missing Persons Search - July 2011

Following the disappearance of a Withernsea woman, an offer of assistance to take part in a wide area search was accepted by Humberside Police and an IRC search team assembled to search the following day.

Following a police briefing at Withernsea Hospital on Thurs 28th July, the team of 6 members were asked to search gullies, ditches and the cliff edge around the Waxholme Road area, while members of the public completed a line search of the fields under supervision of the police. 

An IRC rescue ambulance was kept in attendance throughout the search.

The team stood down late in the afternoon after an unsuccessful search.
