Incident No: 01 2018

Date: 2 January 2018
Time: 19.49hrs
Location: Gosforth, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Northumbria Police requested advice and support from ourselves and North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team in regards to a high risk missing person on Tuesday evening. A male in his mid-70s and living with dementia had been reported missing.

Our Duty Controller provided advice to the Police accordingly and it was agreed at that stage no further action from #MountainRescue was required. The situation was monitored until later in the evening when the Police confirmed the male had been located, safe and well, in the city centre of Newcastle.

A good outcome for all concerned.

The incident involved four Team members for 1.5 hours.
