The team was called out to search for a missing walker who had failed to return from a walk up Scafell Pike. Along with other mountain rescue teams we searched all the routes up Scafell Pike overnight without success. A more detailed search started in the morning and sadly a body was found in Piers Gill. Team members from four mountain rescue teams and a helicopter from RAF Boulmer assisted in the difficult recovery operation that followed.
