We were called by Police about 4 walkers reporting themselves lost somewhere near the stretcher box at Mickledore. We gave them some more time to either make their own way off or phone in again to provide more information. Later on as we were just about to start a search they made their own way off the hill and we stood down.
Incident started at 16:47 and ended at 22:30 making 5.7 hrs in total. There were 8 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 46
