Callouts 2011

Winsford Hill, Exmoor National Park

The Team were contacted by Police late on Saturday evening to assist in the search for two missing women in the Winsford Hill area.  The women had earlier contacted the Police by mobile phone stating that they were lost.

As the Team were arriving and deploying search teams, one of the women returned to their vehicle of her own accord.  The second woman however remained missing.

As weather conditions deteriorated, a Police Search Dog located the scent of the missing woman and quickly found her in an area of exposed moorland.  Search Parties were deployed to the location to carry out evacuation of the casualty.  Two ESRT Emergency Medical Technicians treated the woman for symptoms of hypothermia and the woman was quickly evacuated by stretcher to a waiting Ambulance.
