Lost Woman Found By Coastguard

coastguard 2St Mary’s Coastguard was called out at around 3am on Sunday morning after a visitor got lost on the island.

The woman, who had become disorientated in the darkness, called police to say she was on a cliff “just down from a mast.” She had tried to walk from Old Town to Hugh Town.

Coastguard volunteers searched the coast path until she was found, just underneath the runway.

She was reunited with her husband and the couple have thanked the islands’ emergency services for their swift response.
