underwater search fails to find Dylan
specialist underwater rescue boat has completed its search of
the waters around Burnham-On-Sea on Wednesday (August 22nd) without
any trace of four-year-old Dylan Cecil being found.
UK Underwater Rescue, an independent charity, spent the day using
its hi-tech sonar equipment to try and find the body of the youngster,
who slipped off Burnham's jetty on Sunday night.
organisation's Chief Executive, Duncan Winsbury, pictured, said
the group's rescue boat had searched a large area of Bridgwater
Bay without the boy being found.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We've completed the search and
have searched the whole bay and we've not found anything."
believe that the currents may have taken him right out to sea
now - he is certainly not in the bay."
"The police, the coastguard and the RNLI think that we have
searched much more than they could have expected to have been
searched and more thoroughly."
"Unfortunately in this case, it's the old saying 'We can't
find what is not there'."
charity's boat is equipped with two side scan sonars which are
purposefully designed to find bodies under water.
searches of the coast were carried out during Wednesday by lifeboats,
hovercraft crews, Coastguards and beach wardens with nothing found.
