We were called by Police initially by a walker reporting themselves lost somewhere on Scafell Pike. We were then called by two more walkers reporting themselves lost who turned out to be part of the same party. Using PhoneFind the locations of both groups were determined and then small teams went to each location. The walkers were found and then dry clothes provided before walking them back down to Brackenclose and a cup of tea at the base.
