Sad Day - Fisherman missing on loch Etive !

The latest news on the fisherman missing on loch Etive is that the search has now been called off completely. The missing angler 33 year old Kevin Gallacher from Uddingston, Lanarkshire was on his first fishing trip when his boat capsized after being hit by freak waves on loch Etive north east of Oban, Argyll.

The other four anglers in the party were able to swim to the shoreline and raise the alarm when the boat overturned at about 4.30pm on Saturday.

Clyde Coastguard followed up extensive sea and air searches on Saturday with more searches along the shore of Loch Etive yesterday but failed to find him. An RAF helicopter and a Strathclyde Police helicopter were also involved.
