Kinder Mountain Rescue Team
Saving lives in wild and remote places

4: Callout Sunday 14th January 2018

We were called to the assistance of a lone walker who had been reported missing by his family. Early conversations with him had failed to give us clues as to his location, so the Kinder Plan was initiated, with all 4 teams covering their sides of Kinder. Additionally, a Coastguard helicopter was requested to aid the search. Unfortunately, bad weather prevented Rescue 912 making it to the area but fortunately a Glossop section had just spotted a light being flashed in the Black Ashop Moor area. Upon investigation, the missing walker was located, warmed up and then escorted off the hill.

We were called to assist a mountain biker who had come off his bike and injured his leg, believed broken. After initial confusion as to his location, we were able to confirm him to be on the track down to the camp site near Bowden Bridge, where an NHS ambulance crew were already on scene, having been assisted by the staff from the campsite and his fellow bikers.

Once the ambulance crew had given him appropriate pain relief and splinting, we were able to carry him down to the waiting ambulance for transfer on to hospital.

A request was made via the Duty Controller by Derbyshire Police in New Mills for assistance in looking for a missing person. Following discussions between myself and the Duty Controller, it was felt that there was not enough information to focus any possible searching we might do. The misper was found safe shortly after in New Mills.
