Callouts 2010

Prayway Head, Simonsbath, Exmoor National Park

Prayway Head Callout

Whilst supporting the Exmoor 30:30 endurance event, a member of the public flagged down a Team Land Rover.  The team were informed that a man was missing and long overdue from his planned walk on Exmoor.

Avon and Somerset Police were contacted and the team immediately re-deployed to search for the missing 68 year-old gentleman and his dog.  Weather conditions had been bad all day, with strong winds and fog blanketing the moor.

After less than two hours of searching, a search team located the missing gentleman wandering around lost in the fog on Cheriton Ridge.  The man was a little cold, but otherwise healthy, so was kept warm in a team shelter whilst a Land Rover was deployed off-road directly to the location on the ridge.

The man was re-united with his wife back at Prayway Head before darkness fell.
