From Bude coastguard & Bude RNLI:
Bude Coastguard Rescue Team were paged at 20:38 last night and tasked to assist Devon & Cornwall Police with a search for a young female who was seen and heard screaming in the vicinity of the Cliff Hotel near Crooklets Beach.
Upon arrival at the scene, two search teams were deployed north towards Northcott, with one searching along the coast path and one along the bridleway.
A helicopter from the National Police Air Service HQ was also tasked to search the area, as was a police dog handler, with Bude Lifeboat searching from the water. Bude Inshore Lifeboat was launched last night at approximately 9 pm. The volunteer lifeboat crew completed a search from Northcott and south to Efford.
Nothing was found and all involved were stood down. This was a call with good intent.
The volunteer lifeboat crew followed the virus protocol and duty crew only attended with other members of the crew on standby.
If you see anyone in trouble at the coast remember to phone 999 or 911 and ask for the Coastguard. The coastguard will ensure the correct help is sent.
