90-year-old man's boat found off West Wales coast

A search is resuming off the coast of West Wales today (April 16) for a 90-year-old man who's gone missing in the sea near Gwbert in Cardigan.

Arthur Ray Taylor was wearing a navy jumper and dark grey waterproof jacket when he went out in his boat at half nine yesterday morning.  

His boat's been located, but Mr Taylor is still missing.

Milford Haven Coastguard coordinated an extensive air and sea search for Mr Taylor last night.

The Coastguard rescue helicopter from Caernarfon; Cardigan, Gwbert and Moylegrove Coastguard Rescue Teams and RNLI lifeboats from Cardigan and Fisghguard were all involved in the search along with Dfyed-Powys Police. 

After a thorough search of the area, nothing further was found and the search was suspended overnight. Milford Haven Coastguard has resumed a search operation in the area this morning (Sunday 16th April).
