Search for missing OAP

Have your say

LIFEBOAT crews searched the Wear today after a vulnerable elderly woman was reported missing.

Shortly after 5am two RNLI Lifeboats were requested to carry out a full search of the river and its banks from Sunderland Marina to Ayres Quay, Deptford, after the South Tyneside resident went missing.

After about an hour the search was terminated after volunteers were happy that the river had been searched completely.
