VideoRay ROV Used In Missing Person Search

VideoRay ROV Used In Missing Person Search

​The Police Marine Unit in Southampton have begun underwater searches as they continue to appeal for help to find a grandad missing for nine days.

Officers are using a VideoRay ROV with BlueView sonar to try and find Paul Tillyer who vanished on December 28 after making his way to his boat.

Detectives leading the missing person’s inquiry are also talking with colleagues at Thames Valley over the possibility of using police divers to search the water.

Mr Tillyer, 64, was last seen as he walked towards Southampton’s Town Quay where he lived on his boat, the Lady of Bali. A bag of shopping he was carrying was later found on the side of the boat.

With more than 1,800 Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) in service around the world, VideoRay has clearly become the global leader in ROV technology, and is ideally suited to rapid response Port Security and SAR (Search & Recovery) operations.
