[34] SEARCH – Porthleven, 30/08/2019 15:08 hrs

Just after 3pm team search managers were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police to discuss an ongoing search for a 12-year-old child missing from the Helston area. Team members were put on stand-by to allow a rapid deployment if needed. As search plans were being considered (and kettles were being boiled across the Duchy), a report came through that the young girl had been seen on the coast path and she was located soon after by officers in Praa Sands and returned home. This was a great outcome to what was developing into a pretty major search effort.
