Date: 24 September 2017
In the early hours of this morning Northumbria Police requested our support in locating a high risk missing person in the Seahouses and Beadnell area of Northumberland. Given the information available, deploying the Team and North of Tyne MRT was not required. Instead, the Duty Controller assisted by liaising with the Police Search Adviser and sending a SARLOC to the misper’s phone before monitoring for a response.
The National Police Air Support unit was utilised and Police Officers provided ground support. The misper was located 45 minutes later.
Back to bed by 4.00am!!
The incident involved two members for 45 minutes.
