The team were contacted on Sunday evening by Avon and Somerset Police and asked to search for a missing 57 year old man.  The man had been reported missing from his home in Crewkerne earlier in the afternoon.

 

Exmoor Search & Rescue Team searched nearby fields, farms, tracks and woodland throughout the night alongside Police Search Teams and the Police Helicopter.

 

The search was briefly halted at 0300hrs on Monday to allow team members to rest before being recommenced in daylight later in the morning.  Fresh resources including search dogs, additional SARDA Dog Handlers from Dartmoor Rescue Group and further Police search teams were called upon to assist in the search.

 

A further full day of exhaustive searching was undertaken with possible sightings of the man by the public being swiftly investigated.
