A walker (m, 74) was reported overdue from a walk beginning at about 09.00 on Monday. NYP found his car in Kettlewell and after carrying out its own enquiries continuedd searching and called out UWFRA at 02.57 on Tuesday. UWFRA later called in RAF Leeming MRT, CRO and Swaledale teams, plus a Coastguard helicopter to assist. Low cloud hampered searching by helicopter and searchers on foot were treated to thick drizzle and very gusty rain showers. By dusk, no-one had been found and the teams stood down for the day. Searching will begin again on Wednesday morning.
Volunteer hours: 75, but to be continued . . . .
