[7] SEARCH – Treliske/Portreath, 16/02/2017 21:58

During regular team training in the evening we were made aware of a developing situation in Truro, with a 44-year-old male missing from Treliske hospital. As further facts came to light, the team were called to search areas of open ground and woodland around the hospital. As three foot teams and a search dog team were about to deploy, further intelligence indicated the missing male had been sighted in Portreath. Once field areas were searched by the NPAS helicopter and woodland areas by a police dog team, we deployed a single air-scenting dog team to further clear the woodland between Illogan and Portreath. As the team worked down through the difficult terrain the missing male returned home and the team stood down just after 1am.
