In the early hours of Sunday morning, Northumbria Police requested Mountain Rescue’s assistance in a search for a vulnerable missing male. The male was believed to be in the Alnmouth area and was mobile.

Following an initial briefing with the Police Search Adviser, it was agreed not to deploy immediately and to review in one to two hours time when more information became available.

Thankfully an hour later the male was located by the Police and the Teams stood down.

The incident involved 2 Team members for 2 hours 10 minutes.
