    At just after 09:00 this morning our steep ground specialists were called out to assist Devon & Cornwall Police with an ongoing male dispondent missing person search in South Devon.

    Alongside HM Coastguard, DSRT Plymouth, and Devon and Somerset Fire Service teams, which was a continuation from a previous day's search,  we searched a steep heavily overgrown quarry around Beesands until being stood down at 1700.

    Search teams were deployed to various areas around sheer and steep ground slopes within the quarry, supported by the Police Drone Unit which sought to identify possible areas out of sight from the ground.
