After over 10 hours of searching the all weather lifeboat Alan Massey is still out searching for the diver missing 12 miles offshore at the site of the wreck, SS Minnehaha. Coxswain Aidan Bushe reported that they had been conducting a parallel search in a box whose dimensions are 7 miles by 3 miles. Weather conditions are excellent for searching with good visibility.

The Tamar class lifeboat is a new addition to Baltimore. It has a top speed of 25 knots and range of 250 miles. It is run by a bespoke RNLI solution known as Systems and Information Management System (SIMS).  Onboard the lifeboat are Coxswain Aidan Bushe, Cathal Cottrell (mechanic), John Rochford, Shane MacSweeney, Sean McCarthy and Jim Griffiths.
