2020 Incident #20: 24th June 21:40 – Kirkby Stephen Assist, Rawthey Bridge

The team were paged for assistance with a search for an overdue walker. After initial assessment, the call was passed to Kirkby Stephen MRT as the area was within their patch.

After searching overnight, KSMRT requested our assistance in continuing the search and relieving their team.

Sadly, the body of the missing man was found later in the morning by one of our team’s search dog handlers. Our thoughts are with the man’s family, loved ones and friends.
