In the third callout of the day, Cumbria Police requested support to search for a missing person. The Team Leader initially requested the drone team, who were able to be released from the Penrith MRT search and travel back by that point. A full callout was subsequently made for a detailed ground search. Fortunately, some time afterwards we received the good news that the police had located the missing person elsewhere and the team stood down and returned to base.

Incident started at 10:56 and ended at 17:15 making 6.3 hrs in total. There were 17 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 006187. Total rescuer hours: 107
