On Wednesday evening, Northumbria Police requested advice from our Duty Controller regarding a missing female in her early 40s from Sunderland. She had last been seen the day before at her home. Information from the Police suggested the missing female might have used public transport to get to Durham.
SARLOC and a follow up text message was used by the Duty Controller, acting on behalf of the Team and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team. Unfortunately the missing female did not respond to either message and in agreement with the Police the incident was closed.
The incident involved 1 Team member for 3 hours.
