Search continues for spearfisherman missing off South Coast

-

A search is continuing for a man who has gone missing after he went spearfishing off Ringstead Bay on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast on Monday afternoon.

An extensive overnight air, sea and land search for 27-year-old Andrew Scott by police and coastguard crews began shortly after 9pm last night when the alarm was raised after he failed to return home to Winterborne, in Whitechurch. The search resumed this morning.

Scott has not been seen since he set off to go spearfishing on Monday afternoon. It is thought he was wearing a full black wetsuit and blue fins. His bright-orange dry bag containing his car keys, mobile phone and clothing was found at the White Nothe headland, while his car was parked at Ringstead Bay.
