[21] STAND-BY – Constantine, 13/08/2018 19:40 hrs

Team search managers were contacted by Devon and Cornwall Police to discuss search options following reports of calls for help coming from a valley near Constantine. Immediate actions were discussed and it was decided that police dog teams should be initially used to search the most heavily-wooded areas in the vicinity of the shouts. The NPAS helicopter was also brought in to cover large areas of open ground. With wooded areas searched and no further reports of cries and no missing people in the local area, it was decided that there were no defined search areas for the team, so we were stood down. The origin of the original shouts was never clarified, so this remains a mystery.
