Whitstable Lifeboat was launched following a report of a car in the sea at Leysdown. Sheppey Coastguard were also tasked.
The lifeboat approached the scene as far as the depth of water would allow and stood off a ½-mile from the shore whilst the coastguard made their way to the 4 x 4 vehicle.
The lifeboat was then released from the scene as it was believed there were no persons in the water.
