CALLOUT 55 – Call to assist missing runnerNovember 28, 2023
Yesterday afternoon (1500 23/11/23), as some of you may have seen from the post by The Wellsprings, the team was contacted and subsequently deployed to assist Lancashire Police with a search for a missing teenager near the Nick of Pendle.
Team members were deployed to the RV along with further assistance from Bolton Mountain Rescue Team and a request for further resources from Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England alongside both the Police and Coastguard helicopters.
One of our ATVs made its way up Pendle from Barley and over the summit via scout cairn towards the top of Ogden Clough whilst the incident control was set up with the police at the Wellsprings.
As more information was gathered from the police and search areas arranged, the teenager was located by police some distance away in Clitheroe at approximately 17:20. Team members withdrew from the hill and stood down, vehicles returned and washed to be ready again should any assistance be required throughout the local community.
