Missing person - Honiton

Written by

Callout 4/2021 - Honiton 01:50 28th January 2021

The team were called out during the early hours of Thursday morning to search for a missing person.
Subsequently we have been part of an ongoing multi agency search in the Honiton area over the last 36 hours involving search & rescue teams from across the county, as well as DSFRS and of course Devon & Cornwall Police.
During that time 35 team members from Ashburton have been out searching across three separate shifts.
Woodland, farmland, rivers, paths and bridleways have all been searched with no further sighting of the missing person.
Team members have currently been stood down awaiting any further intelligence.
But for now equipment decontamination and maintenance needs to be done so there will still be several hours work for some team members.
As ever our thoughts are with the family and friends of the missing person and also much gratitude to our friends, families & supporters who make it possible for us to provide the service to the community of Devon.
