Incident report

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team together with Edale, Derby and Woodhead MRT’s were asked by Derbyshire Police to conduct a further search for a missing person. The search was a continuation of one conducted on 20 August and the police helicopter and rescue boat were involved together with mountain rescue search dogs.

The missing person, a 42 year old man from Dronfield, had not been seen since 19 August and police were concerned for his safety. Away from the footpaths much of the ground is covered by extremely dense undergrowth and was very difficult to search.

Despite good daylight conditions, nothing was found, and Buxton team were stood down at 16:00. Police investigations are continuing.
