Incident report

Dave Mason and two other search dog handlers called by Staffordshire SARDA Emblem001police to Loggerheads to assist in the search for a 79 year old male missing since mid-morning.  The gentleman is believed to be an Alzheimer sufferer and does not normally walk far from his home. 

The three search dogs were asked to clear a two mile area of woodland but nothing was found.  The incident is still ongoing with Staffordshire police but Peak District search dogs or teams have not been re-called to assist.
