The team were called out by the Police just after 6pm on August 31st after two ladies in their 70s were separated on a walk at Dovedale.
Upon reaching an agreed meeting point one of the ladies waited for her friend for over an hour before becoming concerned for her friend's safety. She continued on to the Isaak Walton hotel and contacted the Police to raise the alarm.
The team mobilised two vehicles to the area to set up a search control point near the hotel. A team member, who lives nearby, was also sent to the hotel to get more information about the missing person.
At the same time, the "missing person" contacted the Police on a mobile phone to report that her friend was missing. She had waited for about an hour before becoming concerned and raising the alarn. She was informed that the friend had made a similar call, and the two were re-united at the Isaak Walton Hotel. Our team member made sure they were both safe and well, and the team were stood down.
