Called to Portobello for a Vessel Adrift

People Assisted: 0

The Lifeboat crew received an early morning call following reports of a rowing boat drifting off Portobello.

The vessel was located and found to be an inflatable dinghy. At this time, information was received that there may have been four people seen on board earlier in the morning. A search of the area was completed with local Coastguard Rescue Teams.

Nothing was found and the search was stood down. It turned out that the dinghy had been stolen and appears to have been cast adrift.
