Three children were reported missing yesterday afternoon.

Bridlington inshore lifeboat launched to assist the Bridlington Coastguard and RNLI lifeguards to search for a missing child at 1.10 pm on Monday afternoon.

After a report that the child, a young girl, may be in the sea the inshore lifeboat crew searched the shoreline.

Soon after the lifeboat entered the sea the lifeboat station received reports that two more children were missing - a six-year-old child in Filey and six-year-old child at South Beach who was separated from her mum while on the beach.

Following this nine of the stations RNLI volunteers joined the search for the missing children.

Bridlington Coastguard Rescue Team were stood down on route to Filey.

The six-year-old child, missing at South Beach, was located by RNLI Lifeguards and reunited with mum and rest of the family.

All three lost children were found safe and returned back to their parents care.

RNLI stations and lifeguard units are able to supply all parents or guardians with a bracelet, free of charge, on which they can write a mobile contact number. This will help in reuniting any lost child.
