Massive search for ferry traveller called off
A massive search operation for a ferry passenger feared overboard in the North Sea was called off last night.
Two rescue helicopters and three lifeboat crews spent the day scouring the seas around Fair Isle after reports of a man missing from the Hrossey.
The vessel, which left Aberdeen at 5pm on Thursday, was travelling from Kirkwall to Lerwick when the incident was reported to the captain, Nigel Barnes, at 4am.
