Incident 1. 1st January

We were called at 09.23 to assist in the search for an at risk 62 year old male who had many medical issues. He had left his home in Estover during the night, wearing only pyjamas, dressing gown and slippers. An extensive search was carried out by 26 of our members along with a similar number of our colleagues from DSRT Plymouth, covering woodland, open ground and some steeply-sloping land with dense undergrowth. Police carried out property enquiries and some personnel from Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service checked watercourses in the area. After many hours of searching the multi-agency operation was scaled down once darkness arrived. some volunteers did not return to our base until 19.00. The search will continue tomorrow.
