Incident report

Buxton team along with Edale, Kinder and Glossop rescue teams and a number of search dogs were called to locate a missing male on Kinder Scout.  The solo male walker had set off from Edale but had become disorientated in thick mist and rain.  A Sea King helicopter joined the search as darkness fell but was unable to offer much assistance in the very poor weather.

The man was located in the middle of the plateau and escorted to safety.
