[8] SEARCH – Chulmleigh, Devon 20/02/2017 13:21 hrs

One of our SARDA dog teams was called to support Exmoor Search & Rescue Team search for a missing male, after his van was located near Chulmleigh. During the afternoon search teams from Devon & Cornwall Police and DSFRS were in attendance, along with North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team, Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Tavistock and Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team – Ashburton. At around 11pm he was located cold but safe at a farm near Chulmleigh.  At the height of the search there were over 60 members of the voluntary search and rescue teams actively searching. A truly amazing effort.  A great example of a multi agency working.
