Alert only – July 8th Sun. 23.11hrs – 3 Peaks Walk, North Yorkshire – Alert only

A caller was concerned when two walkers didn’t return at the scheduled time from attempting the 3 Yorkshire Peaks walk. The last contact with the walkers said they were ‘lost’ and at least 2 hours from their car. Initial attempts to locate the walkers using the ‘Phonefind’ facility did not work, so a team member set off for Horton in Ribblesdale (the usual starting point for the 3 Peaks walk) to try and locate their vehicle. Before the team member arrived, the caller informed the duty controller that the walkers had made it back to their car and were safe and well. The team member mobile to Horton was therefore stood down.
