The crew of the inshore lifeboat  were tasked to join a search which also involved police and coastguard teams from Dunbar & North Berwick. They were searching for a woman who was described as vulnerable and there were fears for her safety.The ILB crew searched the harbour area, then west along the shoreline to Belhaven and onto the River Tyne before heading back to the harbour and commencing a search eastwards to Dunbar golf course. The search failed to find the woman in question and  the Coastguard stood down all teams and the ILB returned to the harbour.
