Abandoned Clothing in Creux Harbour Prompts a Major Search and Rescue Operation

Monday, 24th August – A large Search and Rescue Operation was initiated following the discovery of two sets of clothing, shoes and cash on the quay of Creux Harbour in Sark.

St Peter Port Lifeboat, Flying Christine 3, Sarnia, Leopardess, a French SAR Helicopter and numerous local vessels, responding to a “Mayday Relay”, took part in a search of the sea around Sark. Sark Fire Service also organised a cliff-top search of the many bays and inlets around the island.

Ongoing inquiries during the operation, including appeals for information on local radio, identified that the clothing belonged to Jet-Skiers who had left the clothing in the harbour the previous evening and safely returned to Guernsey.SarkSearch
