Poole lifeboat launched to a report of two persons seen going out in an inflatable but not returning back to shore.
The Lifeboat was launched by Solent Coastguard at 21:50, Saturday (June 8) initially tasked to search East of Bournemouth Pier, when the volunteers arrived on scene another report had come in that an inflatable had been seen West of Bournemouth Pier.
The lifeboat volunteers commenced a search from Bournemouth to Boscombe Pier. As the volunteers were scouring the area, another report came through that an inflatable had now returned to shore and all was safe and well.
The lifeboat returned back to station, the crews re-fueled the lifeboat and it was made ready for service by 23:15.
