43: Callout Sunday 16th December 2018

The team were alerted by the Duty Controller to 2 walkers who had been out since 1100 the previous day. As the weather since then had been atrocious, there was great concern for their safety and welfare. The Kinder Plan was triggered with all 4 teams beginning their searches.

Initially, an NPAS helicopter had tried to search but been unable to due to cloud cover. As this cleared later on, another request was made for a search by an HM Coastguard helicopter. As Rescue 912 arrived on scene, a Kinder party located the missing pair near Kinder Gates. After an initial assessment and warming, they were quickly loaded onto the aircraft and transported to Sheffield Norther General for  further care.

All the teams were then able to stand down. A great result for all concerned.
