Incident #1509 Walshaw

At 14:46 on Thursday 8th June 2023 Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request from Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to assist with the search for a pilot of a paraglider reported to have come to land in the Walshaw area. 
CVSRT conducted a coordinated search with the emergency services. Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA), National Police Air Service (NPAS) and West Yorkshire Police (WYP) searched open areas using their air assets.  CVSRT teams focussed on searching several wooded areas on foot and drivable tracks using our off-road vehicles.
Following a thorough search of the agreed areas, with no person or equipment found, the team were stood down.
This was a genuine call by concerned members of public and fortunately it appears no one was injured.
