Search suspended for missing jet skier in the Solent
HM Coastguard has suspended the search for a missing jet skier following the discovery of a jet ski in the Solent pending further information.
Despite a through and comprehensive search by RNLI lifeboats from Bembridge, Yarmouth and Calshot, independent lifeboats from Gosport and Ryde, the search and rescue helicopter from Lee-on-the-Solent, HM Coastguard’s fixed wing aircraft, Coastguard Rescue Teams from Hillhead, Hayling Island, Ventnor and Bembridge and the Hampshire Police Marine Unit, nothing has been found.
The search which began at 7.28pm yesterday (August 4) and continued overnight and throughout today, has now been suspended, pending further information.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends at this very difficult time.
