Pair Missing as Boat Capsizes in Loch
By Hilary Duncanson, Scottish Press Association
A major search is under way for a man and a young girl who have gone missing after their boat capsized.
The pair fell out of their rigid inflatable craft shortly after 3pm today at Milarrochy Bay, Loch Lomond.
A Royal Navy helicopter from Prestwick, a police helicopter and Luss rescue boat are all involved in searching the loch.
An underwater search unit from Central Scotland Police is also taking part in the hunt.
A force spokesman said: “There are obvious concerns given the temperature of the water in Loch Lomond.”
A spokesman for Clyde coastguard said the missing girl was thought to be 13-year-old.
But he said the information had come from a third person connected in the incident, who was “not coping very well”.
