CALLOUT 2/23: Missing 11 year old
CALLOUT: On Saturday evening North Wales Police requested our assistance to locate an 11 year old boy who had become separated from a family member while walking in the Clwydian hills near Ruthin. By this point it was dark and a significant search was commenced involving a considerable number of Police Officers, a Police Helicopter and over 20 NEWSAR team members.
NEWSAR team members deployed in several groups to search the likely paths in the area.
In just under an hour a NEWSAR party located the missing child on a track near to where the family were staying. The boy had done a good job of finding his way off the hill back towards "home", without a torch or navigation equipment!
