Callouts 2009

Bishops Hull, Taunton, Somerset

The team were called out early on Saturday morning to assist in the search for an 82 year old man, missing from Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton the previous evening.  The police were extremely concerned for his welfare.  The surrounding area of the hospital was searched and following CCTV footage of the man heading north, large areas of open ground, parkland and rivers in the vicinity were also searched.

Around 0940 hrs a member of the public subsequently sighted the man very close to the search area and dialled 999.  A South Western Ambulance Service crew responded to the call and picked up the man who was transported safely back to the hospital.
