*** Incident No.7 ***

16.32hrs, 31 January 2016

A short lived incident this evening with a positive outcome. A family of three became lost in woods near Hexham.

Northumbria Police contacted the Team for assistance and to see whether the SMS location app, SARLOC, we use could pin point the exact location of the family. No sooner had the Police contact ourselves and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, we were stood down as the family had been located by the Police. All three were safe and well.

The incident lasted 4 minutes and involved one Team member!
