Sea and land search for missing 14-year-old

Efforts to find a missing 14-year-old girl last seen in "difficulty" in the sea are focusing on the shoreline at low tide.

It remains unclear whether the unnamed teenager is believed to have been washed out to sea or went missing after returning to dry land.

Coastguard searches are leading the operation today but South Wales Police are continuing house-to-house inquiries in the area.

Doubt as to where exactly the missing teenager may be was raised yesterday by the coastguard.

Steve Jones, rescue manager at Swansea Coastguard, said teams were "dumbfounded" the initial report about the girl took up to an hour before being made.
