Incident report

Buxton MRT along with three other teams and three search dogs were called following a message from a man with his son lost on the Kinder plateau.

Operating from Edale, the team commenced a search of the southern edges for the man and his 13 year old son who had become disorientated in thick low cloud and darkness after a day’s walking.  Although in cell-phone contact with rescue control, the man was unable to give any clear indication of his whereabouts and a full scale search of the moor was commenced. 

Eventually the two, from Salford, Manchester, were located by a search dog team operating from Hayfield and were escorted off the moor.
