Whilst returning from the previous incident the team were tasked with searching for a 75 year old male lost on Kinder Scout after walking up from Jacobs Ladder. With no clear idea of his present location, and being unable to contact him by phone or SARLOC him, we called for assistance from our neighbouring teams to cover all the possible locations. As we were moving people into search areas, one of our parties came across a walker who informed us that his father had located the gentleman and was walking him down into Edale. They quickly caught up with them to confirm it was our gentleman before giving him a quick check then passing him over to a Buxton party to return him to his vehicle.
