Lost family near Pupers Hill

Callout 37/2020 - Cross Furzes, 11:35 19th August 2020 

Dartmoor Search & Rescue Ashburton were deployed by Devon & Cornwall Police to assist locating a family who had become lost in poor weather after camping overnight near Pupers Hill.
While the rescue team were on their way, the family contacted a local farmer who picked them up and drove them to the Lud Gate road head where they met the first of our team members arriving for the callout. After an assessment by our team doctor to ensure they were uninjured they returned to their car.
The team stood down at 12:18hrs
