Tarn Hows 2nd December 2013 21:29hrs 42/2013
The weather was once again mild and dry. It was obviously dark.
We were asked to assist the police in searching for a missing person. Areas covered were Tarn Hows (Tom Gill Waterfall), High Cross, the east side of Coniston Water, and Hodge Close. Two dog handlers, one from Duddon & Furness MR team and one from Langdale & Ambleside MR Team also responded to the call out. A Search and Rescue helicopter was utilised to assist. Well into the search we received the news from the police that the gentleman had been found safe in his vehicle at White Moss near Rydal. We were then stood down.
A total of 22 Coniston Team members attended this incident including one of our SARDA dog and handlers. We were deployed for 1 ½ hours.
