The team split into land search teams and a boat team and carried out searches from Oranmore to Galway docks while the boat team searched the Islands. A body was located on the shore at Tawin Island and recovered by the Doolin D-Class boat back to the RNLI Station in Galway where it was then removed to Galway University Hospital.
