Callouts 2009

Awliscombe, Devon

The team were contacted at 18.30 by Devon & Cornwall Police and tasked to search for a missing 83-year old gentleman from the Honiton area.  Given temperatures were already below zero during the evening, an urgent response was co-ordinated.
At the time the first team members were arriving, the missing person was reported sighted by a member of the public.  Team members and a Team Land Rover were sent to the reported location.  The gentleman was treated for hypothermia and stretchered to a nearby road, where an ambulance was waiting to take him to hospital.
