Sad end to Valley of the Rocks search at Lynton

Shortly before 5pm on the 15th August, a full team callout was issued to assist our sister teams Exmoor and North Dartmoor Search and Rescue.

Emergency Vehicles

Exmoor had been tasked to assist Devon and Cornwall Police on Sunday with a search for a missing vulnerable male in the Valley of the Rocks area West of Lynton who had not been seen since he checked into a campsite on Tuesday for a one night stay.

North Dartmoor and ourselves joined the search today that along with Exmoor, involved the RNLI, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, and Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

Body discovered

Our duty search manager said “We were stood down shortly after 8pm when a body was discovered by an RNLI crew further along the coast. We extend our sincere condolences and thoughts to the family and friends of the person involved at this very sad time.”
