The team received a call from Cumbria Police about two walkers who had spilt up early into a walk up Scafell Pike. The first had completed his walk and was concerned for his friend who had turned back but was now not able to be found in the valley. Neighbouring teams were alerted in case a wider search was needed, but shortly afterwards the missing walker was reported to have turned up and all teams stood down.
