Incident 4, 9th January

At 18:40 our sister Team from Okehampton requested our assistance in a search for a high risk 40 year old female. She had been missing from her home in Shebbear since about 14:30 in inclement weather. Search Managers from both Teams planned the search of the local area, deploying search teams using 17 of our members along with a similar number from the Okehampton Team, including two air-scenting search dog teams. Some personnel from Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service also assisted in the search. Just before 22:00 the subject was located, following information from a local resident, and was assessed by one of our Team Doctors. She was then transported to Hospital for further assessment. A successful outcome to a multi-agency deployment.
