Scafell Pike – Sat 26th Jun 2004 – Callout 21 in 2004

Call from Workington Police regarding a single 36 yr old male long overdue on Scafell Pike. Last seen near the summit at 21.15 hrs but wearing waterproofs etc. The group of Three Peakers had set off from Seathwaite and were intending to be picked up again in Wasdale. Although they had split their group to search for the missing party member they were unsuccessful. The Team Leader advised them to wait until morning but received no less than 7 more calls, at various times through the night, before he was eventually reported safe and well (in Seathwaite again) at 10.00 hrs the next morning.As the Team had a scheduled practice on Sunday 27th June, we did undertake search routes relating to this missing person. The search was undertaken with a full Police log being kept, however, as there was already a team practice scheduled, and sufficient numbers turned up at 0900 hrs, it wasn’t necessary to do a Full Call Out bleep.
