Extended search for missing person from Launceston farm

In the early hours of the 13th March, a 50 year old female went missing from her home in the Tregeare area near Launceston in Cornwall. Our colleagues at Cornwall Search and Rescue Team were asked to assist the Police in the search but were unable to locate her.

North Dartmoor and Tavistock Search and Rescue teams were deployed in the afternoon to help with the search that carried on into the evening. As temperatures dropped to around freezing Plymouth Search and Rescue and ourselves were asked to continue the search overnight until around 6am. On Thursday the 15th, Exmoor Search and Rescue Team were also deployed with the search being supported throughout by SARDA search and rescue dogs. This is one of the largest regional responses to a search in recent years.

A representative from our team said “All the members of all the mountain rescue teams involved, including the SARDA search dogs, are unpaid volunteers relying almost entirely on the generosity of the public for donations and fundraising to maintain and keep serviceable our specialist equipment and vehicles. We are all working hard along with the local community and the Police for a safe and positive outcome”

Update

Great news as search comes to a safe conclusion.
