"Team tasked to back up Newquay Coastguard on behalf of South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, and with assistance of Devon & Cornwall Police to search for a missing person. Newquay RNLI Lifeboats were also launched, into difficult conditions.

"Ambulance control had reports of this person to be in the Watergate area, but with extra assistance, this search was widened to include up to Lusty Glaze and Mawgan Porth.

"This person has now been named as 48-year-old Lisa Goodman. She is 5ft 5', medium build with long brown hair.

"Search teams were sent in both directions with both Watergate and Porth as a starting point. Police helicopter Oscar99 was also requested to help with the location of the casualty. Edge safety officers in cliff harnesses were set up to view the more difficult areas.

"Through communications with ambulance control, and police, further information became known and it was suggested that the missing person was not in the direct area, but perhaps more towards Tintagel.

"Ongoing investigations for her whereabouts are continuing between Newquay and Bude.

"With this considered to be the most up-to-date information, both lifeboats were stood down, and all search teams recalled.

"Both Coastguard teams were then stood down, and returned to their respective stations at 1715hrs, and were back on station ready for any retasking by 1800hrs".
