18:57 (Grid SD 335 945)

It was a cool, dry evening when CUMPOL alerted us to a woman and her daughter who were lost in Grizedale Forest. We tried to use SARLOC to locate them (a text from us unlocks their phone’s GPS position), but the signal was too poor to work. We were contacted again by CUMPOL, saying that the pair had got down to the visitor centre, so we were stood down.

This call out involved 10 team members and lasted 1 hour.
