Two females became disorientated whilst returning to Coniston from Seathwaite. They wandered off the path for Walna Scar and became lost.
18 members of the team attended the call out. Duddon & Furness Mountain Rescue Team were also deployed as the walkers had been and still could be in their area. Since it would be dark soon, the more people searching for the ladies, the better.
Eventually they were found by the Coniston Team which used whistles to locate the ladies. They were safe and well and returned to Coniston Base by the Duddon & Furness Landrover as this vehicle was much closer to them.
