Incident report

The Team was called to search for a family walking on the Kinder plateau who reported themselves as lost.
Initial attempts to locate the missing couple by the team leading the search were not successful and the search was therefore escalated to four teams, Buxton, Kinder, Edale and Glossop assisted by search dogs. A subsequent attempt to locate them using the SARLOC application was successful, and the couple who were approximately 400 metres north of Kinder Low just off the Pennine Way, were found and accompanied to safety by members from Kinder team
