The team were put on stand-by after the car of a male missing from Hampshire was found in the Hayle area. As investigations continued, the team were then called out to search large areas of open ground, fields and ditches. Several foot teams searched through until just after midnight before being stood down for the night.
Teams then returned the next day and in deteriorating Cornish mizzle continued to expand the search, also recovering areas only covered in darkness the previous night. With all high- and medium-priority areas covered and darkness setting in, the search was again suspended and investigations continued.
Thankfully, and quite remarkably, the missing male then returned home to Hampshire on Monday morning.
