The team were called just before 7:30pm yesterday evening after a family rang the Police as they were stuck on Thorpe Cloud. The family (who were from North America) had a toddler and an infant, and had been enjoying a nice evening walk when the weather turned and an unexpected thunder storm made the descent back down the hill slippery.
Four team members were sent out in a team vehicle and searched the area, however the family were not in the area. Some passers-by reported that they'd seen a family matching the description heading back to the car park. After a few more enquiries the family were still untraceable.
The team passed the information back to the Police and were stood down.
