Having only just returned vehicles and kit following a mini-exercise with Devoran Scouts, team members locking the gate were alerted to a missing person in the Idless area. As a search plan was being formulated, still-warm vehicles were deployed and team members converged on Idless Woods. This is a really difficult area to search, with a maze of tracks and paths running through waist-high brambles and brash. Hard enough in daylight but even more taxing in darkness!
Two foot teams and a SARDA search dog team covered numerous areas up to 500m from the car park, finally standing down for the night at 2:45am.
