Missing young adult, Woodbury Common

Callout 12/2021 - Woodbury Common 20:59 7th April 2021

Whilst on our weekly training exercise in the Saddle Tor area the team were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police to assist in a search for a young adult on Woodbury Common.
She was thought to have experienced a medical episode having not returned home from a walk & her phone was not reachable.
A full team callout was made, the exercise aborted and our sister team North Dartmoor Search & Rescue were asked to stand by, pending improved understanding of the search tasking.
Thankfully she was located by Police helicopter, having walked about 8km and after making contact with family.
The team were stood down en route at 21:42hrs.
