On Saturday 12 April at 7:27 pm the coastguard requested the launch of both Falmouth’s RNLI lifeboats following the report of a motor boat on fire in Mylor harbour. It could not be confirmed that anyone was onboard the boat consequently the lifeboats were tasked to search for people in the water nearby.
Falmouth's Severn class all-weather lifeboat Richard Cox Scott is fitted with AIS which shows the boat's position to the Coastguard and other AIS users. You should be able to see the lifeboat's current position on the map below. You can zoom and move the map.
