Coastguard teams have gone back out on Tuesday morning to resume their search for a yachtswoman missing off the Cornish coast.
Crews have told Pirate FM that hopes of finding Ona Mary Unwin alive are fading.
It is believed wreckage found near Sennen on Monday afternoon could be the 65 year old's boat, 'Seagair' and police are examining it.
She left Mousehole for Bideford on Saturday night, but never arrived home.
The Penlee, St Ives and Sennen lifeboats were scrambled in the search, along with rescue helicopters from RNAS Culdrose and RNB Chivenor.
Falmouth Coastguard area manager Steve Huxley put out this appeal: "We're doing everything we can. Obviously she's on her own, she obviously sailed at night and she could be very tired now. If they saw, perhaps walking the cliffs yesterday, saw the vessel, they could perhaps narrow our search down.
"As you can imagine it's a fairly exstensive area to search. We're using helicopters and possibly a fixed-wing aircraft as well. Also at this stage we're broadcasting to all the shipping out there as well but, as yet, we've had no response from shipping so obviously our concern is very high."
On Monday lunchtime Andy Watts, Leftenant Commander of 771 Squadron from RNAS Culdrose, said: "So far no sightings at all. There's been lots of good intentions, linking in with the Coastguard team, reporting possible wrecks, possible wreckage, vessels possibly matching the description; 31 foot, white hull, blue stripe, with a prominent name, 'Seagair'.
