Location: Bamburgh Castle
Northumbria Police requested our support, alongside North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team, to assist in organising and coordinating a search for a missing 7 year old child around the beach area of Bamburgh Castle. The Coastguard and RNLI had also been requested along with the NPAS helicopter.
The Teams were placed on standby while more information was gained and a search strategy developed.
Shortly after being placed on standby, the NPAS helicopter located the child on the beach who was then picked up by a Police officer.
