A Police Dive Unit are continuing in an ongoing search operation for a 15 year old local female who went missing in the water at Llandudno.

It appears that while a group of friends were together at Llandudno the teenager may have slipped off rocks before being swept away by rip currents.

CoCT Llandudno Lifesaving lifeguards, NSRI rescue swimmers, the SA Police Services, Law Enforcement officers, Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services, Community Medics, Hout Bay CCP officers, Life Healthcare response paramedics, Community Cohesion Services, ADT officers and PPA Security officers responded.

On arrival on the scene a sea and shoreline search commenced including lifeguards and rescue swimmers conducting sweeping line free dive search efforts.

A Police Dive Unit activated, they assisted in free dive search efforts.

Despite the extensive search and rescue operation there remains no sign of the missing teenager.

NSRI Hout Bay, NSRI Bakoven, Law Enforcement Marine Unit, CoCT Llandudno lifeguards, Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services, WC Government Health EMS Rescue Squad and their EMS Rescue Drone Unit will assist Police divers in their search efforts on Saturday.
