Unknown Location – Sun 26th Jun 2005 – Callout 19 in 2005

Call from Workington Police, via Essex Police. A 23yr old female had last had mobile contact with her mother (in Essex) about 1.5 hours ago. She’d said she was lost on the fells and was “sliding down rocks on Scafell”, when the phone signal cut out and couldn’t be made again. Mother was worried that she’s may have had an accident. We didn’t know where they’d set off from and couldn’t confirm Scafell vs Scafell Pike but decided to do a full team call out and use as much daylight as possible. At 8.35pm a message came through to say she’d rung home again and was safe and well. Team stood down again.
