Alert only – Sep. 8th Sun. 22.45hrs – Three Peaks area, North Yorkshire – Alert only

Three walkers (f, f, f) were reported overdue on the Three Peaks Walk, possibly on Ingleborough. With no instructions on what to do and the only phone they knew about going to voicemail, relatives did an internet search and found a commercial walking guide. After some discussion, he advised calling NYP for help.  With the only hard evidence being a social media post from the top of Whernside, saying that the group had intended doing two of the peaks, but had now decided to do all three, any other information provided seemed to be surmise.

On the assumption that the group started from Horton in Ribblesdale, a local CRO member was tasked with searching Horton for ‘a big black Peugeot’. However, before he had found it, the mispers phoned home, to say that they had missed their way on Ingleborough, but were now safely back at the car and setting off home. No action required.
