Incident report

Search Dog, Megan, dragged her handler, Dave Mason, out for the second time today to look for missing man.sarda_meg

Staffordshire Police asked for assistance to search the dales and paths around Ilam Youth Hostel following the disappearance of a 40 year old male earlier in the afternoon.  The circumstances of the disappearance and a medical history gave rise to fears for the man’s safety.  Derby MRT and three search dogs combed the area all through the night but nothing was found and the search was suspended at 06.00 on Friday.

Police were considering a resumption of the search on Friday morning but the man walked into Ilam YHA at 10.55.
