A walker who found a fully-laden rucksac leaning against a wall corner below Attermire Scar, having shouted around over a period of about 20 minutes and hearing no response, asked for advice. Having then identified the owner as Dutch, he was advised to close up the sac and leave it. A while later, the duty controller asked a group of walkers who would be going past to let him know whether it was still there. (This saved anyone from going especially.) They reported that it had gone and then, some time later again, reported that they had spoken to the owner (complete with rucksac) in Settle and that all was well.
