Edale and Buxton Mountain Rescue Teams both called together with a number of search dogs in response to a mobile phone call from a family lost on Kinder Scout. The family, two adults and a twelve year old girl, were spoken to by incident leaders who were able to get a rough fix of their position on the southern edges. Searching sections then went from Edale village to locate the family on Upper Tor. No worse for their ordeal they were led back from the hill.
Another case of short winter days with no torch in the back pack.
