Posted on Wednesday Mar 18, 2015

Belfast Coastguard paged LNR at 12:10 to a report of an overdue rowing boat with a man in his 90s onboard. Visibility at the time was very bad due to thick fog. LNR launched Ardboe and Kinnego Lifeboats but as a search got underway, the man was located safe & well by family & a coastguard rescue team. All boats where returned to base and stood down.
