03-04-13 Clifftop Rescue
Coastguard and RNLI joined forces this week to search for a missing man for whom concern had been raised.

[Coastguard Helicopter G-SARC at Kinlochbervie]The Lochinver RNLI lifeboat was launched to provide assistance from the sea, and the Stornoway Coastguard search and rescue helicopter provided aerial support to Kinlochbervie's volunteer coastguard rescue team as they searched the cliffs at Sheigra.

After hours of searching the Coastguard helicopter and teams were stood-down for a few hours overnight whilst the lifeboat remained on station.

The search resumed again at first light whereupon the missing man was located and taken for medical assessment.
