Claiffe Heights area 18th August 2016 17:42hrs 40/2016


The Team was alerted by Cumbria Police to assist with locating a child who had become separated from a family group while walking from Hawkshead to Far Sawrey. He hadn’t been seen for over two hours and there were concerns for his welfare.

The Team sent two vehicles full of personnel and deployed both Team Search dogs, arranging a hasty search of the tracks and paths in the Latterbarrow, Claife and Sawrey areas.

Thankfully after approximately an hour of searching we got confirmation that the young man had been located safe and well at the Windermere Ferry by a PCSO from Cumbria Police who had been part of the search operation.

We returned to our vehicles and stood down.  In total 15 Team  members and one of team members friends were involved and the incident lasted approximately 2 3/4 hours.
