Missing yachtwoman left Island months ago

A 65-year-old yachtwoman who’s sparked a huge search operation after wreckage of her boat was found off the UK coast left the Isle of Man just months ago, according to newspaper reports.

Ona Unwin set off from a Cornwall port on Thursday but hasn’t been seen since.

A massive search is underway by helicopters and lifeboats.

According to neighbours, she’d moved to the UK from the Isle of Man three months ago.
