Search launched for kite surfer
Saturday 19 November 2011
An air, sea and land search has been launched for a missing kite surfer.
The alarm was raised at 4.20pm yesterday after a kite surfer's gear had been found adrift in Poole Harbour, Dorset.
The Coastguard - including helicopter - RNLI lifeboat and Dorset Police joined the hunt.
"A search of the south east corner of Poole Harbour was undertaken both of the sea and the shoreline," a Coastguard spokesman said. "Dorset Police also joined the search and assisted with inquiries at local residences."
The board is a white, orange and brown Brunotti model measuring 1.3 metres by 40cm.
The kite is a red and black Cabrinha Convert 11.
"Despite the search and inquiries, no kite surfer was located," the spokesman added.
"The search was stood down at 8.10pm and local radio stations are continuing to make broadcasts for the owner or anyone with information to come forward." PA
