The Coast Guard immediately began searching for Gareth Bowen after he was reported missing at Ravens Point, Trearddur Bay at 7:05 p.m. m. An HM Coastguard helicopter and Trearddur Bay RNLI lifeboats were involved in the search, along with rope teams entering the water. The extensive search operation continued into the night before restarting the next morning. However, the search was called off at 4:00 p.m. m. yesterday after search teams were unable to find the missing fisherman.
Coastguard rescue teams from Cemaes, Holyhead, Moelfre, Penmon and Rhosneigr were also involved, while North Wales Police and Wales Ambulance Service were alerted. Andy Hodgson, helmsman and spokesman for the Trearddur Bay Lifeboat Station, told the PA news agency: “We were searching from 7:05 pm last night until midnight and then again from dawn this morning until late afternoon.” “They told us there was someone fishing, a friend of theirs had called the Coast Guard to say that his colleague, a friend, had been washed off the rocks.” He said that he was a man who was swept into the sea. “It was pretty heavy weather, strong wind and big swell,” he said. It comes after North Wales Police said on Saturday that there was a “serious police incident currently underway at Ravens Point, Trearddur Bay”. The force had urged members of the public to avoid the area.
