Kinder Mountain Rescue Team
Saving lives in wild and remote places

40: Thursday 8th November 2018

Two walkers had become lost in fading light on the Kinder Plateau. The Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation Duty Controller was unable to get a GPS from their phone and we had no meaningful information about their route. The Kinder Plan was initiated to search the whole of the plateau using Kinder MRT, Buxton MRT, Edale MRT, Glossop MRT, SARDA search dogs and coastguard helicopter. The walkers were found just off the old Pennine Way around Crowden Head by Kinder 1. They were uninjured and able to walk off the hill. Kinder 1 handed the walkers over to Buxton MRT at the edge path and they were walked down to their start point at Edale.

The team were notified by the police of a potential vulnerable person in the area. Following discussions with the police, it was decided to focus our search around the reservoir area. Our team SARDA handler was tasked to search the perimeter whilst other parties searched nearby wooded areas. The dog indicated a possible find in the reservoir so water trained personnel from both our team and the Fire Brigade were mobilised to search the reservoir by boat. Nothing was found and we were stood down.
