The team were alerted to search for a missing 28 year-old man, who had been attending a wedding at a hotel. He was known to be wearing inappropriate clothing for the sub-zero temperatures and in a vulnerable state.
Whilst weather conditions prevented Helicopters assisting with the search, the team were joined by HM Coastguard, Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service as well as the several Police Units.
The missing man was located outside of the search area and was taken home by his family.
Letter of thanks received:
