Northumbria Police requested Mountain Rescue’s assistance for a missing person search in South Shields yesterday afternoon. The missing person had last been seen on two days earlier and the Police were increasingly concerned for their wellbeing.
In discussion with the Police Search Adviser it was agreed that North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team and ourselves would deploy. Team members worked alongside Police officers to search Temple Memorial Park. Despite our collective efforts nothing was found and Police enquiries are ongoing.
The incident involved 10 Team members for 4 hours 50 minutes.
