HM Coastguard requested that the lifeboat join a search by four Coastguard crews and local Police for a missing Totnesian. After a difficult passage to Totnes the lifeboat crew searched both river banks from Long Marsh, around Vire Island and up to Totnes Weir. No one was found by any of the teams and the search was stood down after just over two and a half hours.
