Upper Eskdale – Fri 21st Oct 2016 – Callout 62 in 2016 (limited)

We were called by Police about a walker reporting himself lost after descending Scafell Pike, probably somewhere in Eskdale. It was difficult to obtain more precise information on his whereabouts until his Girlfriend rang in to say she was tracking him on the ‘Find my iPhone’ app and had a position for us. A small team went on the fell and helped walk him back to Eskdale.
