Huge night search launched for missing boy, 15, in Burnham-On-Sea

A huge search operation was launched for a missing teenager in Burnham-On-Sea last night.

The 15 year-old boy was reported missing on the seafront by worried family members.

Helicopters from the police and Coastguard, plus crews from Burnham and Weston Coastguards and BARB Search & Rescue, conducted a search of the tideline and seafront.

Two Burnham RNLI lifeboats were also launched at around 10.30pm to scour the estuary while a police helicopter searched overhead along the seafront.

The crews were stood down shortly before 11pm when the boy was found safe and well by police.
