We were called by Police about 2 walkers reporting themselves lost whilst descending from Scafell Pike. Using PhoneFind their position was determining as being on Lingmell Nose. They were given some directions over the phone by the Team Leader. However, after losing contact with the group for nearly two hours a limited callout was made to ensure that they were down safely. Whilst we were deploying they call in safe and well, off the hill.
Incident started at 17:00 and ended at 19:30 making 2.5 hrs in total. Incident occured at NY20370794.
