Wexford RNLI Lifeboat was launched at 11.35am today in response to reports of a man missing in a boat. Other vessels in the area assisted in conducting an extensive search in heavy fog, but nothing was found.
It emerged that the person was ashore and had not been on the water as thought. The call out was made with good intent. Call 112/999 and ask for the Coast Guard if you see someone in difficulty on or near the water.
