The full team was called yesterday evening to assist Dorset Police in a search for a 5 year old child who had gone missing from Knoll Beach in Studland.
The young lad was found an hour after he was first noticed missing by a concerned member of public some two miles away at Shell Bay.
With a Bank Holiday weekend approaching and some scorching temperatures, the beaches are currently packed with families and it's more important than ever for parents to keep a close eye on their children, as they so easily vanish into a crowd. And as we saw yesterday, even at a steady pace, children can soon find themselves a fair distance away.
Think about agreeing a place to rendezvous and/or a child's wristband with your name and mobile number on it
