Boat reported missing off Cornish coast - Assistance required

The BBC report today: 'Major search launched after boat goes missing off Cornwall' LINK Major search launched after boat goes missing off Cornwall - BBC News

A 6.1m RIB called 'Whisky One' sent a Mayday call at 19.50 on Boxing Day (off the Cornish coast near Bude). Despite a search no trace of the RIB was found.

One theory is that the vessel reached a place of safety and have not reported it to UK Coastguard. Let's hope that there is a straightforward and happy explanation.

IF ANYONE CAN SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS INCIDENT PLEASE CONTACT UK COASTGUARD.

RIBase
Locally they are looking at a hoax. There has been a number of calls to different emergency services in the last week - could just be another

It's an odd place to be in a rib at this time of year after dark.
