Northumbria Police requested support from North of Tyne MRT and ourselves in locating a high risk missing female. At there was little information on her possible location.
Our Duty Controller used both SARLOC and MX SARMAN’s location tool to try to assist with locating the missing female. Unfortunately both tools require the missing person to click on a weblink embedded in the text message that we send to their phone. On this occasion the missing female did not click on the link.
Thankfully an hour later the female was located safe and well in Berwick.
The incident lasted 1 hour 4 minutes and involved one Team member.

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.
