Callouts 2012

Paignton, Devon

The Team were asked to assist North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team in a search for a missing 76 year old lady in the Paignton area of Devon.

The previous evening, two teams from Dartmoor Rescue Group (Ashburton and Plymouth) searched until the early hours.  Further information came to light in the morning, leading North Dartmoor Search & Rescue Team to be called to continue the search.  Assistance was sought from Dartmoor Search & Rescue Team - Tavistock and from Exmoor Search and Rescue Team.

During the search, the lady was found in dense undergrowth by the police helicopter.  Exmoor Search & Rescue Team's Land Rover was then used to evacuate the lady to an ambulance on the main road.
