THE search continues for a boy who is though to have been swept out to sea off Anglesey.


North Wales Police confirmed yesterday (Wednesday, September 3) that Isaac Nash, aged 12, of Huddersfield had not been found after he was swept out to sea from Aberffraw on Friday, August 29.

However, a Holyhead Coastguard spokesman confirmed that no teams had been sent out yesterday to look for Isaac.

Holyhead Coastguard received a 999 call at around 12.30pm on Friday, August 29.

Later reports suggested two men and a boy had managed to make it back to shore, but another youngster was caught in the large waves and swept out to sea.

The Rhosneigr, Holyhead, Bangor and Moelfre Coastguard Rescue Teams along with two coastguard sector managers were involved in the search, alongside RNLI lifeboats from Porthdinllaen, Holyhead, and Trearddur Bay, two search and rescue helicopters from RAF Valley and one from North Wales Police.

Paul Evans, on HM Coastguard in Rhosneigr, posted a message on a Facebook page about Isaac.

He said “On behalf of all members of our coastguard team at Rhosneigr and our neighbouring coastguard teams throughout anglesey.

“Our thoughts and prayers are of all family and friends of Isaac.”
A lantern vigil was held for Isaac in Huddersfield this week .
