Search Dog Megan with handler Dave Mason and another SARDA Unit were called to serach for an 86 year old male who had wandered away from his care home in Etwall.   The man, suffering from dementia, was located by a member of Derby MRT just 500 metre from the point he was last seen.  He had collapsed into a ditch and whilst uninjured  he was suffering from hypothermia.  Dave and Megan were close by and were able to assist with immediate first aid and evacuation of the casualty to an ambulance.
