Location: North Tyne Valley
In the early hours of Sunday morning, Northumbria Police requested assistance in an ongoing search for a missing female in the North Tyne valley. North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves responded with Incident Controllers liaising with the Police Search Adviser to agree a search plan.
The Teams were called out soon after and deployed to search paths, tracks and wooded areas near to the missing person’s point last seen. Assistance was also requested from Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team to search the banks of the nearby rivers as we had a limited number of water trained members available.
Nearly six hours later the missing female was located by one of our search groups, safe and well, and was soon reunited with her family. A good outcome for all concerned.
The incident involved 25 members for 6 hours 30 minutes.
