A 65-year-old woman who left Cornwall, in a yacht purchased the day before has sparked a search and resuce operation after she failed to arrive home in Devon.
The £32,000 Seagair sloop was purchased in Falmouth last Thursday.
Relatives in Bideford raised the alarm on Sunday after she failed to appear.
According to a BBC report today, an air and sea search has been launched off the Cornish coast for a 65 year-old yachtswoman, who has not been seen since she set sail from Mousehole, Cornwall on Saturday. She was heading for her home town of Bideford, North Devon.
