Incident No: 27 2017

Date: 13 July 2017
Time: 21.36 hrs
Location: Northern part of operational area

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.
