The team leader was alerted by Cumbria Police after a walker reported themselves lost. Using PhoneFind they were able to confirm the walkers location and gave directions. Once they found the stretcher box and the footpath they descended down the hill with a couple of PhoneFind checks to confirm they were heading in the right direction. The walker later contacted the team leader to confirm he was off the hill.
