Call came in from a concerned husband whose wife and 4 year old child were overdue. The family had set off from Wasdale head camp site to walk up to Burnmoor Tarn. The father and 11 year old son carried on up to Ill Gill Head but when they returned the mother and 4 year old were no longer there. When he got back to the valley bottom there was no sign of the mother who had returned but went the wrong way and ended up in Eskdale. She returned at 5.16 p.m. and therefore no further action was required by the team.
Incident started at 16:39 and ended at 17:16 making 0.6 hrs in total.
