- Duration – 45 minutes or 20.25 man hours
I was contacted by the Duty Controller to look for a lone walker who was overdue back to his accommodation. The man had reported earlier to his wife that he had hurt his knee but then communications were lost when his phone battery went dead. There was concern for the man as it was forecast to be bitterly cold overnight. We were just putting together a search plan that included our team, Buxton MRT and SARDA dogs when a report came in that he had turned up, much to the relief of everyone.
