Rescue specialists search South Devon cliffs for missing person

CALLOUT 25 / 2017 - 09:30 29TH SEPTEMBER 2017 

At just after 09:00 this morning our steep ground specialists were called out to assist Devon & Cornwall Police with an ongoing male despondent missing person search in South Devon.

Alongside HM Coastguard, DSRT Plymouth, and Devon and Somerset Fire Service teams, which was a continuation from a previous day's search,  we searched a steep heavily overgrown quarry around Beesands until being stood down at 1700.

Search teams were deployed to various areas around sheer and steep ground slopes within the quarry, supported by the Police Drone Unit which sought to identify possible areas out of sight from the ground.

Unfortunately, no trace of the missing person was found and the Police investigation continues.

Dartmoor Search and Rescue volunteers frequently help the Police with missing person inquiries not just in Dartmoor National Park, but across Devon and on occasions, to major incidents nationally. #morethanjustmountains
