A call was received from Cumbria Police about a lone walker who had set off from his accommodation in Eskdale for a walk up Scafell Pike at 9am, but had not returned by 10:30pm. Further information was being gathered and the Team Leader was preparing to initiate a Full Callout for a search when the police reported that he had turned up safe and well at his vehicle. He had had a very long day out on the fell with a few wrong turns but otherwise OK. With some relief the Team Leader closed the log and turned in for the night.

Incident started at 22:33 and ended at 23:52 making 1.3 hrs in total. There was 1 Wasdale team member involved. Total rescuer hours: 1.3
