Overnight we have been in Exeter alongside our colleagues at North Dartmoor Search and Rescue, assisting Devon and Cornwall Police, to locate a male which they are concerned for his wellbeing.

Mystery surrounds disappearance of a man disturbed trying to take his own life

Police officers, dog units and a Police helicopter were used alongside Ashburton and Okehampton Dartmoor Search and Rescue Teams but without any idea of who we were looking for or the direction of travel, it was always going to be a difficult tasking.

The Dartmoor teams searched the Ludwell Valley together throughout the night and were eventually stood down at around 5:30am with no further clues or sightings of the individual.
