Incident #1007

CVSRT called to assist West Yorkshire Police with the search for Peter Silson, a vulnerable 80yo male who had been reported missing at 10am on 22nd April.

25 team members were available to assist with the search and once on-scene were tasked with searching woodland at Otley Chevin. After 6hrs all areas of interest were cleared without a conclusion, so the team stood down and returned to base at 1:30am, then onward to their homes.

The team was informed several days later that Mr Silson had returned home by himself, and was said to be safe and well.

In attendance: 25 CVSRT
