Search resumes for missing boy off Anglesey coast

The search has resumed for a 12-year-old boy who went missing off the coast of Anglesey on Friday afternoon.

The boy was swept out to sea whilst paddling with a younger boy.

Lifeboats and three helicopters had searched for the boy, believed to be on holiday from Huddersfield, Yorkshire, but the search was called off last night due to poor conditions.

Coastguards said they were told two children had been paddling in the water when waves swept the boy away.

A spokesman said:

"The father managed to get one of the children out of the water and the grandfather went in to rescue the other lad but a wave swept over. He managed to grab the rocks but lost grip of the child who is missing."
