Res­cue teams find miss­ing man

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
