We were called by Police about a group of walkers who were reported as wet through and poorly equipped for the conditions, one of whom was also missing. The group were found by a mountain leader at the Esk Hause shelter. As this is in Keswick Team’s patch the incident was passed to them but a small group from Wasdale was dispatched to help search for the missing walker. Before we set foot on the fell the missing walker was found and walked back to Seathwaite so we stood down.

Incident started at 12:17 and ended at 14:30 making 2.2 hrs in total. There were 4 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 234 083 (altitude 726 m). Total rescuer hours: 9
