Northumbria Police contacted North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves for advice yesterday morning. They were concerned for the wellbeing of a vulnerable male, who was potentially in Cumbria.
Using SARLOC, a smartphone location app, and MX SARMAN’s location tool, our Duty Controller was able to confirm the missing male was indeed outside of our operational area in Cumbria. With further information from our Duty Controller, the Police Search Adviser was able to ensure the vulnerable male was returned home to his family, safe and well.
The incident involved two Team members for 2 hours 50 minutes.
