Missing person, Ivybridge

Callout 47/2020 - Longtimber Woods, Ivybridge 15:24 24th November 2020

On Tuesday 24th November Dartmoor Search & Rescue Ashburton were contacted by our sister team DSRT Plymouth to assist with the search for a missing vulnerable male who has been missing since Saturday.
DSRT Ashburton team members searched the Northern area of Longtimber Woods, Nr Ivybridge, searching paths, woodland and stretches close to the River Erme. With no sighting of the missing male, a halt to the search was called at approximately 20:00hrs, with the likelihood to resume searching the following day.
DSRT Plymouth continued their search on subsequent days following our deployment.
Despite the out of area search for our team members, 22 of our team were able to assist, an amazing number of volunteers.
Our thoughts are with the male's family and friends as the search continues.
Update from D&C Police - February 13th 2021 - The man has been found safe and well outside the Devon and Cornwall area
