Sussex Police have confirmed that the search for a swimmer believed to have been missing at Camber Sands in Sussex has been called off.
Officers had received a telephone call from a member of the public at about 9.40am this morning, reporting that they were concerned for a woman who had been seen entering the water at about 8am. It was believed that the swimmer was missing because she had not returned yet to collect a pair of flip-flops left on the beach.
The woman was described as white with dark hair and wearing a black swimming costume. Sussex Police say a woman matching that description called the RNLI at around 11.45 am to identify herself.
Police officers say they helped the Coastguard, the coastguard helicopter crew and the RNLI conduct a thorough search of the coastline nearby during the alert.
