The lifeboat crew was tasked to assist in the search for a missing vulnerable female in the East Wemyss - Methil area.

As Storm Abigail affected the area, the volunteer crew undertook a shoreline search, in challenging conditions, from East Wemyss towards Methil docks.

Whilst searching the Buckhaven area, it was confirmed that the casualty had been located, ashore, by police.

All search assets, including Kinghorn Lifeboat, local Coastguard Rescue Teams, and the Police Scotland helicopter were stood down.
