Man threatens suicide as he leaves Parke estate

Dartmoor Rescue volunteers were called to the Parke estate near Bovey Tracey following reports that a male had threatened suicide before leaving the National Park office.

The search involved our volunteers as well as the Police and a Seaking helicopter from RAF Chivenor with specialist heat sensitive camera equipment. After 7 hours of searching the River Bovey, fields and woodland, the team was stood down around 22:20. Although the gentleman’s van was located, no further sightings of the man had been reported.

UPDATE 7th January 2013: The man has returned home safe and well.
