Incident report

The team was requested, along with Kinder Mountain Rescue Team, to assist Cheshire Search and Rescue in an ongoing search for a missing person in the Macclesfield area.

The teams were briefed at the rv point and given areas of the adjacent countryside to search. In a controlled and systematic way, each section set about searching their own areas. The areas were very difficult to search, on occasions team members were just a few metres apart from each other in order that nothing was missed.

The weather was not good with intense rain for most of the time whilst the teams were searching.

The teams were stood down after the missing person contacted the Police.

Buxton MRT member Dave and search dog Griff were also called to assist.
