“I would urge anyone who thinks they may have seen Andy or the dinghy around that area since Tuesday night to get in touch with police.

“If you live in the island communities nearby, please check your outhouses in case Andy has taken shelter there. Similarly I would ask skippers to keep an eye out and check shorelines.”
