Both the Falmouth All Weather and Inshore Lifeboats were afloat on exercise when at 20:00 Falmouth Coastguard requested assistance in a search for a missing person between Flushing and Mylor Harbour. The Falmouth Coastguard Rescue Team and Police Units including the Police Helicopter were also tasked to assist.

The Inshore Lifeboat carried out a search between Kiln Quay and Mylor while the All Weather Lifeboat searched between Kiln Quay and Mylor Harbour. Both lifeboats completed their shoreline searches at 20:58 and were stood down to return to their station. Shortly afterwards the police confirmed that the missing person had been located ashore.

The Inshore Lifeboat was recovered on to its slipway at 21:05, with the All Weather Lifeboat arriving back alongside its pontoon berth at 21:07, where they were both refuelled and made ready for service by 21:30.
