A SEARCH was launched for a missing father and son in Swanage this evening.

The holidaymakers, aged 51 and 15, dialled 999 after they got lost while walking from Durlston Castle to Swanage at around 8pm.

The Swanage inshore lifeboat was launched and located the pair in the undergrowth.

A spokesman from Portland Coastguard said neither were injured.
