An extensive search is under way for a fisherman who had been out fishing from Colwyn Bay since Tuesday night in his 24 feet fishing boat.
A concerned relative called the Coastguard Operations Centre this morning to report that the vessel had not returned as expected. He had not been heard from since 23:30 last night.
We are fearful that this fisherman may have entered the water overnight. Nevertheless the search is ongoing.
The RNLI says four lifeboats - two from Rhyl and two from Llandudno - have been at sea for several hours in the search.
The helicopter was scrambled just before mid-day to search the coastline between the Great Orme and Rhyl.
The RNLI says two men were rescued yesterday evening off Rhyl.
One was holding onto to an inflatable dinghy and the other was swimming to shore but making no progress.
It says they were picked up and taken ashore and given a medical check-up along with some sea safety advice.
