Boats are being warned to keep a look out for any sign of a missing yachtsman from Weymouth.

The 62 year old hasn't been seen since he left the town for Swanage on his vessel the Palamina on Saturday morning (22nd September).

His yacht was found washed up off the coast of Grenay in northern France yesterday with no one on-board (Monday 24th September).

The Maritime Coastguard Agency has told Wessex FM they are: "Continuing to gather information and have asked vessels in the area to keep a lookout."

Dorset Police is leading the investigation with the coastguard and is asking for anyone who sighted the Palamina at sea to get in touch.
