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.
