9/12 – Callout in the Wrexham Area

The team was called out by North Wales Police at 13:45 on Tuesday 7th February 2012 to assist with the search for a missing person in the Wrexham area.

Two NEWSAR Search Managers worked in conjunction with North Wales Police Officers to analyse the information surrounding this case.  The NEWSAR Search Managers then identified areas appropriate for team members to search.

24 team members met in Wrexham before deploying in several parties to search rural areas, with challenging steep wooded terrain as well as some river bank locations.

NEWSAR also called on the assistance of SARDA Wales trailing dogs.

The information gained during these searches was useful to NWP in their ongoing enquires regarding this missing person.

The team was stood down at approx. midnight, with the SARDA dogs returning at 01:30.

Team members then packed up equipment and headed for home to catch a few hours sleep before many of them went off to work this morning.

NEWSAR remains available to carry out further work if appropriate search areas are identified.
