Incident report

Buxton dogs called to assist in the search for a 42 year old male who had failed to return after walking his dog. Search dog Megan did not find the casualty but did indicate at the edge of a large stream in spate; search dog Tyke from Edale team also showed interest in an area of the opposite bank downstream. Further searching using the police thermal imaging on the helicopter located nothing and the search was stood down at 04:00.

Sadly, the body of the casualty was discovered in the stream the next morning, outside all the search areas.
