Portland Coastguard in search for missing skipper

Portland coastguard is involved in the search for a man whose yacht was found ashore with the engine running but no-one on board.

It was found near Brighstone in the Isle of Wight yesterday evening after a member of the public reported a yacht called ‘Brigand’ was ashore with one of its sails up.

Solent Coastguard is coordinating the air, land and sea search.
