Unknown Location – Tue 25th Jul 2000 – Callout 0 in 2000

Call from the Team Leader of Keswick MRT, regarding a 30 yr old male walker who was doing the 4 x 3,000fts. He had completed Skiddaw in the morning and left Seathwaite approx 1330 hrs. Although he had originally been with others, they had left him on his own and had last seen him at the top of Lord’s Rake, just below the summit of Scafell, at 1630 hrs. He was reported long overdue, having not turned up at the next check point at Thirlmere. His route would have been down Foxes Tarn, to Mickledore and over Scafell Pike. Keswick MRT and Search Dogs were going out to look for him. Wasdale MRT would cover the Scafells. A light was seen in Wythburn valley and Keswick MRT were able to confirm a find (safe and well) by 0030 hrs. A recall was sent out to team members and Mill Forge closed.
