    First callout of the New Year to Newton Abbot

    Written by

    A full team callout was initiated at 20:51 to assist Devon and Cornwall Police, as well as Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, in the search for a vulnerable teenager who had been missing in the Newton Abbot area since mid afternoon. Due to the deteriorating weather forecast, torrential rain, winds and swollen rivers, a coordinated search was put into action quickly in an effort to locate missing person before conditions deteriorated further.

    Around midnight, the missing person was found by one of our team members, safe and well and the search was brought to a successful close.

    We would like to thank all our volunteers for turning out to search for the individual on what was a a very wet and windy night.
