*** Incident No.66 ***

Thursday 15 December, 14.37hrs

Yesterday afternoon the Team along with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team responded to a request from Northumbria Police to assist in the search for a missing male from the Morpeth area. The male in his early 50s had been missing since Monday.

The search in and around a wooded area in North Northumberland led to a body being located. A sad end for all concerned.

Our thoughts go out to the man’s family and friends at this difficult time.

The incident involved 20 Team members and one Search Dog for 6 hours 30 minutes.

*** Incident No.45 ***

Saturday 27 August 2016, 19.13hrs

Northumbria Police contacted North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves on Saturday evening having received a report from two walkers saying they were lost in the Cheviot Hills. Little information was available as to the walkers intended route, other than they had started near Wooler.

One of Incident Controllers spoke to the walkers and ascertained that they roughly knew where they were. We then successfully used SARLOC – a SMS location App – to pin point the walkers’ location. They were on the south east side of Hedgehope Hill, on the edge of Threestoneburn Wood (or at least where the wood was!).

Guidance was then provided to the walkers by phone and SARLOC was used to ensure they were heading in the right direction – see photo. The walkers were confident in being able to walk off the hill themselves and evenutally arrived back in the Harthope Valley, where they had started by 21.40hrs and were met b Police officers.

Great use of technology which meant we didn’t need to leave the house!

The incident involved 4 members for 2.5 hours.
