A late call was received from Cumbria Police about an overdue walker from Scafell Pike. A family member was concerned when the walker could not be contacted. Due to the intended route from Borrowdale, Keswick MRT were also alerted. Searches of car parks in both valleys resulted in the walker’s car being found in Borrowdale by the Police. The contents appeared to show that the walker had returned from their walk and possibly staying in a local campsite. As such the Team Leaders stood down for the night. The next morning it was confirmed that the walker was safe and well and so the log was closed.

Incident started at 22:36 and ended at 12:27 making 13.9 hrs in total. There were 3 Wasdale team members involved. Total rescuer hours: 42
