A MISSING person has been found safe after a search near a cliff.  

Emergency services were called to the cliffs in Eastbourne on Monday, May 9.

Police said they were called to help with a search for a missing person.

“Emergency services searching for a missing person on Monday (May 9) conducted a search around the cliffs near Eastbourne,” a police spokesman confirmed.

“The individual was located safe and well shortly before 9pm.”

The RNLI Eastbourne said a volunteer crew were initially paged at about 3.40pm.

They were requested to launch their inshore lifeboat and tasked to assist police, local coastguards and a rescue helicopter with an incident to the east of the Belle Tout Lighthouse.

“There will be no further details due to the sensitive nature of the call,” a RNLI spokesman said.

Last week, a 42-year-old man died after falling from a cliff.

Emergency services were called to the Beachy Head cliffs in Eastbourne on Tuesday, May 3.

His next of kin have been informed.

“A file will be prepared for the coroner,” the police spokesman added.

On May 1, the body of a missing woman was also found at the base of the cliffs at Beachy Head.

Police were initially called as part of a search for a missing woman who had travelled to Sussex from another part of the country.
