[29] SEARCH – Penryn, 20/11/2017 17:20 hrs

The team were called by Devon and Cornwall Police early evening to assist in the search for a 46-year-old female missing from the Penryn area. Through the evening, 19 team members searched large areas of woodland along the Glasney Valley and areas of open land along the Penryn River. Two teams from Falmouth Coastguard Rescue Team were also tasked to search the shoreline areas of the river whilst the Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat searched the river itself. The NPAS helicopter was also in attendance along with numerous other police resources.

Once the team had searched all of the high-priority areas along the valley we retasked members to search likely areas further afield, based on new intelligence. Once all of these areas were completed the team were stood down at 23:00 hrs.

The missing female was then located safe later that night by a police dog handler.
