Callout 25/2023 Exeter 00:05 13th October 2023

The team were called to Exeter shortly after midnight on Thursday to assist in a search for a vulnerable teenager. A search of 30 high probability areas focussing on urban and parkland regions near the point last seen was coordinated from our mobile control vehicle in the grounds of Exeter police station. We were joined by our sister team North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service and resources from Devon and Cornwall police. On completion of the highest priority areas searching was suspended around 6am. The Police investigation continued and with the help of a public appeal, the missing person was found safe and well later on Friday. They were later found substantially outside of our search area.
