[15] SEARCH – Meldon Reservoir, North Dartmoor, 07/05/2016 07:27

With it being Dartmoor Ten Tors this weekend, many of the Dartmoor teams are tied up providing rescue cover. As a neighbouring team, we are thus available to backfill to cover any additional searches in the Dartmoor area. Yesterday an elderly gentleman was reported missing in the area around Meldon Reservoir and some spare members of the Dartmoor teams and members of Exmoor SRT searched through the night, with CSRT tasked to resume the search this morning.

As team members were deploying up to Dartmoor the gentleman, who was rather cold but well, was found by Police resources.
