Wasdale – Sun 24th May 2015 – Callout 17 in 2015

The team was called out by Cumbria Police on Friday evening regarding an overdue wild camper. Due to very little information on the route taken the team was not deployed immediately. As time moved on and more information became available it was decided that the team along with our neighbouring teams would deploy a search. A significant amount of planning and resources were deployed today, thankfully the missing male was located in Wasdale by RAF Lossiemouth team members early this morning.

The team would like to thank, The Wasdale Head Inn, Cumbria Police, Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team, Cockermouth MRT, Lake District Mountain Rescue Searchdogs, RAF Lossiemouth and RAF Boulmer for their assistance.

It is vital that if venturing into the fells that you leave your intended route information with someone.
