The Team Leader received a call from the Keswick TL at 3am for a missing walker believed to be somewhere on the Scafell Massif. He had separated from friends earlier the previous day having set off from Wasdale. Clues in the messages passed on from the informant led to a belief he had been in Seatoller village the evening before. Given it was nearly light we decided to hold off doing anything at that time. Around 6am the Phone Find sent earlier in the night was delivered and a location returned in Cockermouth’s patch so they picked up the job and went up to meet the gent.

Incident started at 03:04 and ended at 06:23 making 3.3 hrs in total. There were 2 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 214 077. Total rescuer hours: 7
