2 Missing Divers

At 14.15 on Saturday afternoon the pagers went off, we had all sat down for a well earned lemonade after the first couple of events for the carnival extreme team competition.
Portland Coastguard requested the launch of both the Swanage Lifeboats to assist in the search for 2 divers missing from a local dive charter boat. The divers had been diving approx 1Nm South of Anvil Point and were now overdue. Both the lifeboats launched and proceeded on route, just as the ILB was arriving on scene the 2 divers were found by another dive boat in the area. Once it was confirmed that these were the missing divers all units were stood down to return to station. A good outcome for all!
