Coniston Fells

Incident 28 of 2022
27/07/22, 16.55, Coniston Fells, SD271994
It was a grand evening for a walk, and that is what we got. Cumbria Police alerted us to a missing member of a party, with location details vague and the missing person without a working phone. We sent four teams up the likely descent paths given the little information available, but one team obtained a positive contact report from some helpful walkers on the fell – thank you! That report, and the elapsed time, allowed us to focus the search on a more definitive area, including the local car park where she was subsequently found safe and well, trying to make contact on a borrowed phone.
10 volunteer team members attended for around 2 hours.
