Missing person located

At 2300 as we were finishing our primary search areas we received information that the missing person had been located outside of our search area, allowing us to go home to our beds.

This callout was a great example of neighbouring Mountain Rescue teams working together, allowing large areas to be searched quickly and effectively.
