Another Tay Estuary Search

UKCAPS aircraft have been engaged in a further search of the Tay Estuary.  Earlier in the year, two searches were carried out for a missing person from Perth whose body was, sadly, recovered from an area close to Newport, close to the mouth of the estuary. Most recently, a large scale search reulted from reports of another person seen in the water near the Queens Bridge in Perth city centre. Our aircraft have since completed 2 sorties in the lower reaches of the estuary for this latest missing person.  Aware that police or coastguard aircraft may be searching in the area, UKCAPS has taken care to coordinate all sorties with the UK Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre and the local police control centre.  Details of these searches can be found on the UKCAPS facebook page.
