The East team responded to a request from Devon & Cornwall Police to assist in the search for a missing person in the Wadebridge area. The team were quickly on the scene and with our search manager liaising with the police we deployed a number of assets onto the ground. Foot teams were supported by a 4×4 mobile unit and the team cycle unit. Also on the ground were a team dog unit and given the proximity of the search to a river, a water team were also being made ready.
Whilst searches were underway the missing person made contact with their family and was able to guide the search teams to their location where team cas carers conducted a medical assessment before returning the person safely back to the team control vehicle.
