Missing Gwbert man's boat 'was found on its side'

A coastal search for a 90-year-old man who went missing after going out to sea on his boat, has been scaled back.

Arthur Roy Taylor, known as Archie, left his accommodation at about 09:30 BST on Saturday to take his boat out from Gwbert boat club in Ceredigion.

The vessel was found later but Dyfed-Powys Police said Mr Taylor was unaccounted for.

The coastguard said the search did resume on Sunday morning but they will now wait until low tide at 18:00 BST.

Boat club commodore, John Leigh, said Mr Taylor's boat was found on its side "with no sign of Archie".
