A full team call out of the Howth unit was requested along with Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue 116 and Howth RNLI lifeboats; a unit of Dublin Civil Defence also assisted in the search.
Following an extensive search and updated information from a witness the search was stood down. Conditions were a south easterly force 8 wind, It is not recommended to walk along exposed areas of the coast line including harbour walls with breaking waves in these conditions. This puts unnecessary risk to the members of the emergency services responding.
Later the Coast Guard patrol assisted Gardai with concern for a member of the public on Clontarf Seafront.
