COAST Guard teams from Dunmore East, Tramore and Bonmahon have been putting everything into their search for local man Brian Kinsella (29) who is missing since November 17. Since the initial tasking, the Coast Guard have clocked up in excess of 2000 man hours and covered countless miles throughout Waterford and south Kilkenny. The search is now entering its 20th day but there has been no positive results as yet.
The Coast Guard continue to reiterate their advice to members of the public to stay well clear from the river and shoreline if they are out searching as they are expecting poor weather in the coming days.
The Coast Guard also paid tribute to the huge efforts by volunteer boat teams, Waterford City River Rescue who are a declared asset to the coast guard and Waterford Marine Search and Rescue along with Waterford Civil Defence who have been out from early morning since the initial tasking.
