Missing person search around abandoned car at Dartmoor Reservoir

Missing person search around abandoned car at Dartmoor Reservoir

On the evening of Friday 6th May the team were tasked to assist our North Dartmoor colleagues with a search for a missing 85 year male whose car had been found abandoned in the Meldon Reservoir area of North Dartmoor.

Team members of all 4 Dartmoor teams were already deployed to assist with the annual Ten Tors expedition so a joint team approach was taken in the search for the missing gentleman whilst maintaining cover for the event.

Our members returned to our Ten Tors base at Sittaford Moor Gate on the edge of Fernworthy Forest at around 03:30am with no sign of the gentleman.

Our search and rescue colleagues at Cornwall continued the search for the gentleman and he was located safe and well later during the morning.
