Sad end to Berry Head search for despondent

Callout to Berry Head, Brixham

After finishing in the early hours of June 7th, the team were called again late that afternoon for a high risk missing person in the Berry Head area.

We were tasked to search the cliffs, the Berry and the forts together with the more inaccessible areas along the cliff tops and inland. High gusting winds and rain made the task more difficult and meant careful searching was required especially near the cliff edges, the team continued until being stood down around 21:00.

Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton control vehicle Dart02 on site at a Berry head callout for a missing person.

We were saddened to learn that the individual's body was washed up on a beach in East Devon later in the week. Our thoughts are with the family.
