We were called by Police about a walker reporting themselves lost whilst out overnight on Scafell Pike. Initially the Team Leader tried to provide instructions over the phone but when they proved unsuccessful a team was sent on the fell to look for the missing walker. They were briefly joined by colleagues from RAF Leeming MRT who were training in the area. Whilst they were deploying a further call came from other walkers on Scafell Pike to say they’d met up with the lost walker who was then escorted down to Wasdale.

Incident started at 03:05 and ended at 11:30 making 8.4 hrs in total. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY22026 08239. Total rescuer hours: 84
