- Location – Red Brook, Kinder

- Duration – 3.5 hours or 98 volunteer man hours
- Volunteer Man hours so far 2258.45
The team received a call from Greater Manchester Police at 16:15 regarding a group of 4 missing walkers, 2 from Mansfield, and 2 of their friends, all originally from Latvia.
They had set off from Edale earlier in the day and with poor visibility, as darkness fell, called for Mountain Rescue help as they were unfortunately poorly equipped.
We were able to SARLOC them to a location near to Red Brook, and two hill parties were dispatched from Moorgate to meet with them, and escort them back to base, where they were warmed up, and driven back round to their vehicle at Edale.
