A family of 5 reported themselves lost whilst returning from a walk on Kinder. The Duty Controller had used Sarcall to locate them at the top of William Clough. Having spoken to them to assess their condition, they were asked by our Team Leader to stay there and hill parties were sent to their location. Most of them were able to be walked off though one of the younger children was too tired by then and was stretchered off by the team back to the road head.

A vulnerable young person went missing from his parents on Highgate Lane and ran towards the moorland. The team were quickly mobilised and began searching from points along the track. NPAS were unable to assist due to the weather so the Coastguard were asked to assist and were preparing to lift. Thermal imaging cameras from the Fire Brigade were brought in as well to assist in the search. Fortunately, the young person was located by one of our team vehicles that had driven up the track towards Mount Famine to search. They were safely loaded into the vehicle and returned to our base and reunited with their parents. A great result for all involved.
