We were alerted by Cumbria Police about 2 walkers who had got split up from the rest of the party in wet, misty conditions near the top of Scafell Pike. They failed to return to the valley. It was not possible to speak to them, so a search was initiated due to concerns over the health of one of the walkers. “Phonefind” gave us a location at 07.45, team members were nearby and found the walkers tired, cold and wet but otherwise OK. They managed to walk off back to Brackenclose. Many thanks to RAF Leeming for their assistance.

Incident started at 02:16 and ended at 11:05 making 8.8 hrs in total. There were 10 Wasdale team members involved and the incident occured at NY 212068. Total rescuer hours: 88
