Public appeal after NSRI Pink Rescue Buoy again stolen at Jeffreys Bay beach

The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) in Jeffreys Bay has made a public appeal after four teenagers - three males and a female, were caught on CCTV cameras, making off with an NSRI Pink Rescue Buoy.

According to information, the NSRI Pink Rescue Buoy was taken from its post at Point Beach, Wavecrest, Jeffreys Bay on Wednesday night.

"The four teenagers can be seen walking out the car park and turning right into Plane Street," described NSRI spokesperson, Craig Lambinon.

"They then stop at the corners of Plane Street and Pagoda Crescent before continuing on their way, one of the teenagers, a male, can be seen clutching onto the NSRI Pink Buoy in one hand.

"Anyone who recognises these teenagers from the photo attached can contact NSRI Communications at 0823803800."

These Pink Buoys are a joint NSRI and public effort in one of many campaigns launched this year to prevent drowning around our coast.

Not the first an NSRI Pink Rescue Buoy stolen in Jeffreys Bay

In January, the NSRI released CCTV footage capturing the moment a group of youngsters appear to have made off with its Pink Rescue Floatation Buoy.
