The search has been resumed for three fishermen off North Wales

The search has resumed this morning (29 January) for three fishermen missing off the Conwy coast on the northern coast of Wales.

Bangor, Llandudno, Flint and Rhyl Coastguard rescue teams and Rhyl, Hoylake and Llandudno RNLI lifeboats will all be participating in the search.

HM Coastguard has been co-ordinating an extensive search to find the vessel since just after 10am on 28 January after it failed to return when it was expected. Rhyl, Bangor and Llandudno Coastguard Rescue Teams have been sent along with RNLI lifeboats from Rhyl, Llandudno, Conwy and Beaumaris.

The HM Coastguard search and rescue helicopter from Caernarfon and a fixed-wing Coastguard aircraft have also been assisting with the search. North Wales Police are also involved and broadcasts have been made to alert vessels in the nearby area. Despite the extensive search to find the vessel and its crew, nothing has been found so far.
