CVSRT - Friday, 17 November 2023
At 00:32 on Friday 17th November 2023, Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team (CVSRT) received a request to support Oldham Mountain Rescue Team (OMRT) who were assisting Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in the search for a high-risk missing person.
In poor weather conditions, CVSRT search teams completed a rapid path search around the Blackstone Edge area and Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England (MRSDE) search dog Wyn and handler Dave joined the Oldham team searching areas nearer the M62.
Once these areas were completed, at approximately 06:00, the team were stood down.
Once daylight broke on Friday morning, GMP continued the search and thankfully the missing person was found, in a caravan, safe and well.
