A POLICE helicopter was scrambled to Ilfracombe in the early hours of this morning to help in the search for a missing 41-year-old man.
The search was launched shortly after midnight following concerns for the well-being of the man.
More than half-a-dozen police officers and members of the RNLI and coastguard joined the search of the town - with teams focussing on the harbour and coastline.
Police officers discovered the man at Ilfracombe skate park at around 1.20am. Ambulance crews took him to North Devon District Hospital to be checked for injuries.
