THE FORT William Coastguard team was called into action on Monday night (October 31) in the search for a vulnerable elderly man.
The man, believed to be 69 and suffering from dementia, had been last seen at Ardslignish, between Salen and Kilchoan.
The Fort William crew were joined by the Salen and Mallaig coastguard rescue teams, duty officer AC17 and Tobermory lifeboat.
Together, they conducted a thorough search of the area along with police and search-and-rescue dogs. Thankfully the team found the man quickly as temperatures were dropping fast. He was said to be in a confused state.
