[30] SEARCH – Illogan, 09/11/2018 10:09 hrs

During the morning the team were put on stand-by to assist the Police in the search for a missing male from the Redruth area. Initial enquiries indicated that he may have been heading towards Illogan, so a search plan was developed to cover high-priority areas in that direction. With the weather forecast to deteriorate through the day, 26 team members were deployed into five search teams, covering large areas of Illogan Woods and Nance Woods and tracks leading to them.

Foot teams searched for four hours in torrential rain and wind and were eventually stood-down having covered the thick woodland as thoroughly as possible. Enquiries are still continuing and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the young male.
