A call was received from Cumbria Police about a walker who had not been in contact for some time. However, the walker was unlikely to be in the Wasdale area and so it was passed with agreement to Cockermouth MRT, with the last known location being in the Ennerdale valley. As the search progressed through the day, we were re-engaged and asked to search from Wasdale Head to Black Sail Pass. Numerous other teams were also asked to search other routes. Happily the walker was found safe and well relatively quickly, and we were all stood down. A good outcome.

Incident started at 07:56 and ended at 13:03 making 5.1 hrs in total. There were 7 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 36
