Missing person search in the Broughton area
Late on Sunday evening the on-call NEWSAR First Responder was contacted by North Wales Police, who requested assistance in the search for a missing person in the Broughton area. The initial action was to request the attendance of a SARDA Wales search dog, and a dog handler and navigator who are also members of NEWSAR followed a trail during the night. The whole team was called out in the early hours of Monday morning, and large areas of woodland were searched by NEWSAR members and search dogs, who were later joined by police officers – as night drew in the search was suspended until the next day.
On Tuesday morning the search was continued, with search dogs again being used – during the search, the body of a deceased person was found. The thoughts and sympathy of all team members go out to family and friends of the deceased.
