Missing Teenager

by Caitriona in  Callouts


Doolin Coast Guard were called at 04.56 to search for a  teenager, reported missing in the Doolin area. Unit members assembled at the Rescue Centre and teams immediately commenced searches in the Doolin village area and at further locations. The Shannon based Rescue Helicopter assisted in the search.

The local  SARDA  Search Dog linked to the team  was  tasked and a short time later he located the teenager.  The Coast Guard / SARDA search dog  team then found the boy safe and well and he was reunited with his group.
