The search for a passenger missing from a Condor Rapide Fast Ferry Ferry travelling from Guernsey to Poole has been suspended.
Nigel Robson, Portland Coastguard Watch manager, said:
"We have searched the route of the ship and the areas where our search planning expertise indicate a person might have been carried by the tide."Sadly, we have found no-one.
"It's now been five hours since the person was reported missing and because of the water temperature and difficulty of searching in the dark, we have now called off the search."
