The team were asked to help locate 2 walkers who had become lost in the clag. Information from them was limited due to a poor phone signal and limited battery. The Kinder Plan was initiated with all 4 teams starting to cover their designated areas, though the area around the 636m spot height seemed possible.
As we were deploying our first party to that location, news came that passing walkers had found our cas party and were walking them back to Edale. The issue then became confirming this and ensuring they had got off before all the teams could stand down. Eventually a Buxton party came across them and were able to escort them off the hill and all the other teams to stand down.
