Broughty Ferry RNLI volunteer crews today (Monday 11 July) resumed their search for a missing male following last nights response to a call for a missing person in the Tayport area, rescuing a dog during the operation.
With the assistance of a volunteer shore crew Broughty Ferry RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched soon after volunteer crews were informed at 9.30am that the search was to resume.
In good weather conditions, the lifeboat crew carried out a thorough search of both the north and south shores from the rail bridge to Buddon Point. No one was found.
The lifeboat crew were stood down at 12.30pm by the Coastguard and returned to base thereafter.
During the search on the south side of the river, the lifeboat crew were alerted by someone from the shore in Tayport that there was a dog in distress in Tayport Harbour. They made their way to the harbour and rescued it before continuing the search.
