Incident report

There was a call late Saturday evening for the mountain rescue teams to search for a missing walker on Kinder Scout. The “Kinder Plan” was initiated in an effort to get as many mountain rescue volunteers from various teams onto Kinder Scout as quickly as possible, due to the inclement weather conditions on the plateau.

As team members were travelling to the RV point at Edale, a message came through that the missing person had indeed been located. As such, team members were messaged whilst en-route, and were able to return home.
