At 16:40 on Saturday 28th November 2020 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from West Yorkshire Police to assist with the locating and evacuating of 2 walkers who had become lost in dense fog whilst out walking near Rishworth.
The CVSRT incident leader made contact with the walkers and successfully identified their location to be the trig point at Dog Hill. This location was verified using phone find technology which triangulates a persons location using their smart phone.
The CVSRT incident leader requested that the walkers remain at this location and a selected call out was raised with team members tasked to approach the location from either side of the hill.
The walkers were sucessfully located at the trig point, provided additional protection from the weather and escorted back to their vehicles.
