Old Man of Coniston

Incident number 2 of 2021 :-
30/01/2021 14.04 Old Man of Coniston SD272978
We were alerted by Cumbria Police to a couple reporting themselves stuck in snow and ice on the Old Man of Coniston. They could not give their position and further attempts to contact them by the Police failed. We attempted to call them and used our Phone Find system to locate them but never received a reply. A small party searched the most likely parts of the Old Man but found nothing. It was decided to conclude the search unless further information became available.
5 volunteer members attended this incident, which took just over 2 hours.
