They had been last seen at 2.30 p.m. when they left their parents to search for a missing dog. The Wasdale Team were tasked to search Styhead up to Esk Hause and from Brotherilkeld up to Esk Hause via upper Eskdale.

The incident was closed by 10.00 p.m.

Incident started at 20:40 and ended at 22:00 making 1.3 hrs in total.
