Man goes missing from installation in North Sea


A major search was launched after a man went missing from an offshore installation in the North Sea.

The 50-year-old was reported missing from the jackup rig Valaris 121, about 100 miles south east of Aberdeen.

The alarm was raised at about 21:00 on Sunday. Valaris said the search was stood down at about 07:00 on Monday.

At the time of the incident being reported, the rig was under tow from its last operating location in the North Sea to Dundee.

Two oil supply vessels, a Coastguard helicopter and Coastguard aeroplane were involved in the search.

Valaris confirmed one of its employees was involved.

"The missing employee's family has been informed of the development, and the company is providing them with support," the company said in a statement.

"The remaining 53 personnel on board have all been accounted for. However, a dedicated phone line has been set-up for any other concerned relatives.

"The number to call is 01224 548527."
