Incident #927

CVSRT received an urgent request from West Yorkshire Police to assist with the search for a vulnerable missing 14yo boy, who was last seen on the riverside track between Gibson Mill and the car park at Hardcastle Crags. His parents had searched the woods thoroughly for approximately an hour, but couldn't locate him and were becoming increasingly concerned for the boy’s welfare, so contacted the police for help.

Once deployed, several team members were on-scene within 4 minutes and proceeded to do a rapid path search from the car park to Gibson Mill, then returning via riverside route. Whilst this was on going, the remaining team members were on-scene ready to join the woodland search.

Thankfully at 17:42 the team received the good news that the boy had been found safe and well in Hebden Bridge. The team stood down and returned to base in Mytholmroyd, then onward to their homes.
