A search for a vessel in distress in Channel Islands waters has been called off.
Jersey’s Coastguard received a call at 11 o’clock last night from a boat said to be heading to Guernsey.
The Channel Islands Air Search aircraft has spent the day searching, but weather conditions have been poor.
As well as searching between the islands and along their coastlines, harbours in St Peter Port and St Aubin have been searched and appeals broadcast to ships in the area. However, they haven’t produced any sign of the ship.
The incident will remain open pending new information coming forward.
Anyone with information on the vessel believed to be called “Delta Buoy” or “Delta Boy” is asked to contact the Jersey Coastguard on 01534 447705.
