Police and coastguard search for man in Lyme Regis
POLICE and coastguards are searching for a man in Lyme Regis following concern for his welfare.
The police helicopter, police officers and the Lyme Regis Coastguard Rescue Team are looking for a 41-year-old man, concentrating their search in the Ware Cliff area.
A Dorset Police spokesman said: “We have got a concern for welfare for a 41-year-old man. “It’s a search that’s involving the helicopter.
“I believe he is from out of the county but believed to be possibly in the area.
“He is not dangerous, just a concern for welfare. “They are searching Lyme Regis as a whole at the moment.
“I believe the coastguards are involved as well.”
Police and coastguards have been seen searching thick undergrowth in the Ware Cliff area and have been assembling at Holmbush car park.
