    Exmouth search, body found.

    Written by

    A full team callout was initiated at 01:31 this morning following a request by Devon & Cornwall Police to search inland areas for a vulnerable female missing person in the Orcombe / Straight Point area of Exmouth, Devon.

    Police, Exmouth Coastguard, Exmouth RNLI Inshore Lifeboat, the Police Helicopter and a Search and Rescue Helicopter from RMB Chivenor had already thoroughly searched the cliff tops, sea and immediate surrounding areas from Foxholes to Straight Point.

    Our initial search with our colleagues from North Dartmoor Search & Rescue Team didn’t locate the individual and we were tasked to complete a low-tide shoreline search where a body was discovered at the foot of cliffs at 05:30 in a location that was totally inaccessible by any Search and Rescue asset the previous night.

    Exmouth Coastguard Officers were re-tasked to assist us with the recovery.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Family and Friends of the deceased at this very sad and difficult time.
