The team leader was contacted by Cumbria police about a young man missing, last seen on the Corridor route at 1400.
He was walking back from the summit of Scafell Pike with his father when they separated because they were walking at different paces. The father reported his son missing when he arrived at Wasdale Head.
One team member was tasked to go to Wasdale Head to speak to the father and try to gain more information as the team was put on stand by.
Fortunately the son turned up at their car and the team leader was notified.
The team were stood down, no doubt happy with the result for the young man and their own sanity on Christmas Eve !
Incident started at 16:04 and ended at 16:50 making 0.8 hrs in total.
