Location: South Shields
Northumbria Police activated ourselves and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team yesterday afternoon to assist in the search for an elderly female. The vulnerable female had been reported missing from a care home.
As our Incident Officer and Team members were travelling to South Shields, the good news came in that the female had been located. She had been found in the town centre, safe and well. The HM Coastguard NE were also attending.
A good, swift outcome for all concerned.
The incident involved 14 Team members for 1 hour 30 minutes.
