A 20 year old female left her car in the Colaton Fishacre carpark. The Falmouth Coastguard tasked the RNLI Dart inshore lifeboat and the Torbay all weather lifeboat to search, in very poor visibility, the shoreline between Berry Head and Forward Point. Police and Coastguard SAR teams carried out a search on shore. She was later found by the Police, fit and well, on Scabbacombe beach.
