INCIDENT 95/2019 – Nov. 12th. Tue. 17.45hrs – Ingleborough – Mountain Incident

A lone Three Peaks walker (m, 30) reported himself lost on Ingleborough, but otherwise unharmed. Before calling the CRO Duty Controller, North Yorkshire Police were able to establish that the misper was on Simon Fell Breast, a little way below the footpath to Horton in Ribblesdale. One member ran up onto the hill from Newby Cote, while others set off, by team Land Rover, to go to a point on the Horton path near Nick Pot. Meanwhile, the Duty Controller lost the misper’s phone signal and the runner could find no-one on Simon Fell Breast. Putting those two points together, the runner went down to Gaping Gill and still found no-one. Just as a second Land Rover was setting off to Trow Gill with a small party that would search up towards Gaping Gill, the misper rang the Duty Controller to say he was just passing Ingleborough Cave en route to Clapham. All members were then stood down.
