2 Police dog units are currently conducting a sweep of the grounds and surrounding areas with the assistance of WightSAR – the Island’s volunteer search and rescue team – and other Police officers.
Hampshire Constabulary are yet to issue an appeal for information and therefore it is unknown who officers are looking for. However, Island Echo believes the missing person (misper) to be a mainland visitor.
According to witnesses Police have been on scene in the car park at Carisbrooke Castle since 13:30. WightSAR were called out shortly before 15:10.
