Race to find missing Newton Abbot teen before storm

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.

A find

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.
