 HOAX 

Shout Number 04/2015

Date/Time: 02/03/2015 11:50 - 13:20

Called to Methil for a HOAX

People Assisted: 0

Our volunteer crew was requested to undertake a search in the Methil area following reports of a person in the water.

The lifeboat searched the mouth of the River Leven, Methil Docks and then returned towards Leven.

RAF Seaking 'Rescue 131' searched between Methil and Lower Largo, whilst Coastguard Rescue Teams from Leven and Kinghorn searched the shore.

Around 1pm Aberdeen Coastguard stood down all assets when it was considered that the emergency call had been a hoax.
