The team was contacted by a group containing two pairs of walkers who were lost not far from the summit of Scafell Pike, in very poor weather. An attempt was made to talk them off the hill, but phone reception was soon lost and when they had not turned up a few hours later a limited callout was made to search for them. They were found near Taw House in Eskdale having descended to the wrong valley.
