The team were called out early evening to search for a 82-year-old male suffering from dementia missing from home in Perranwell. Following a very rapid and large facebook campaign, an initial search of ‘significant areas’ close to home shifted towards Devoran after a second credible sighting. Three foot teams and a SARDA dog team searched large areas between Perranwell and Devoran, with many good-spirited members of public joining the search, requiring some careful management!
At 23:30 the gentleman was located safe and well by a police dog team between Devoran and Bissoe and was reunited with his family.
