Called to Kinghorn for a Person Missing

People Assisted: 1

The lifeboat was tasked to assist in the search for an elderly local man who had gone missing from his house during the night. The crew were asked to search the shoreline between Burntisland and Kirkcaldy, along with shore based search teams from HM Coastguard and the Police.

After an extensive search, nothing was found, and the lifeboat returned to station.

Sadly, the gentleman's body was found the next day, near the shoreline by the local caravan site.
