Crosby Ravensworth 18th September 2015 07:15hrs 51/2015


It was a warm, dry day with intermittent cloud.

Penrith Mountain Rescue Team requested our help with the search for an elderly lady who had gone missing with her dog from the day before. In fact this was a major search involving all the Cumbrian MR Teams as well as M R Teams from outside the Lakes, other Search and Rescue bodies, and the Police.

During the day we were given three areas to search, the first being on the fells south west of Crosby Ravensworth, and the afternoon was spent amongst Orton and Great Asby Scar. The team carried out extensive line searches of the terrain. We were stood down late afternoon when other teams arrived and were being deployed.

5 Team personnel were able to assist with this incident and we were away for 11 hours.
