Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team sent four members as part of a P.D.M.R.O. response to assist in the search for an elderly gentleman.  The search, controlled by Edale MRT, included several areas of river and open water where specially trained and suitably equipped members of Edale, Buxton and Woodhead teams were deployed.

Despite a day-long search no trace was found of the missing person and teams were stood down at darkness.  South Yorkshire Police continue their inquiries.
