Just before midnight on Friday, the Team was put on standby by Swaledale MRT for a search for a high risk missing person near Leyburn. As we were providing rescue cover for the Trail Outlaw’s St Cuthbert’s Way Ultra on Saturday, we were unable to provide any resources for the ‘out of area’ search. Thankfully the missing person was found safe at 3.00am on Saturday morning before the Team would have been deployed.
The Team alongside the other North East MRTs was put on standby by Teesdale and Weardale Search and Mountain Rescue Team (TWSMRT) for a water search in County Durham. The Team had one Water First Responder team and vehicle available. Swaledale MRT is now assisting TWSMRT, and we have been stood down. Here’s hoping it is a positive outcome.
