Just as team members arrived for the monthly maintenance at our Mytholmroyd base, an urgent call from Yorkshire Ambulance Service was received for assistance with the evacuation of an 85yo man who had fallen over a wall and down the very steep embankment from Dudwell Lane towards the railway. Due to the precarious location of the casualty, the full team was immediately deployed.

As CVSRT members arrived at the location, it became apparent that the emergency services on-scene already had the incident under control. A handful of team members were tasked to assist with the stretcher carry at trackside, whilst the majority team members stood down.

Once the casualty was safely evacuated from the railway line and loaded into the ambulance, team members returned to base to complete the maintenance of vehicles and equipment.

Following new information and possible sightings, CVSRT received a request from West Yorkshire Police to continue the search for the missing Halifax gentleman, Mr Granville Muir. 20 team members responded immediately to the call for help.

Team members were tasked with searching densely overgrown woodland and walking routes the missing man was known to use regular. Mid-way through the afternoon, the team received information of a possible sighting outside the search zone but within an area with significance to the missing gentleman. One member was already in that location and four more members deployed to follow up the lead.

Whilst en-route, team members from Calder Mobile 3 noticed a young cyclist laying on the ground at the side of the road following a collision with a wall (Incident 955).

Team members promptly stopped to provide medical assistance until the Yorkshire Ambulance Service crew arrived and then assisted with loading the casualty into the ambulance for further treatment.

Unfortunately the possible sighting of the missing gentleman in Greetland wasn’t him, so team members returned to continue the search at the original location in Halifax.

By 23:15, team members had extensively searched all the areas of interest without finding Mr Muir and were stood down whilst police enquiries continued. CVSRT would like to thank Kinder MRT and Swaledale MRT for providing a search dog and handler from each to assist with the search.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Mr Granville Muir or has seen him recently, please call 101 quoting log 1491.
