Whitstable lifeboat called out to man missing in Faversham
The Whitstable Lifeboat had its first call of the year tonight when the lifeboat was launched at 4.55pm to assist police, coastguards and Kent Search and Rescue in a search for a missing 85-year old male in the Harty Ferry area of Faversham.
The lifeboat crew of Helmsman Dave Parry accompanied by Stuart Enderby and Dan Monk conducted an extensive search from the mouth of the Swale and Nagden Marshes into Faversham and Oare Creeks and west along the Swale to Fowley Island between Faversham and Conyer Creeks.
After two hours of searching all units were stood dow' when Thames Coastguard reported that information had been received that suggested that the search had now moved away from coastal areas.
The man was found this evening in Lewisham.
