Missing person search in the Clwydian Hills


Late on Thursday afternoon we were requested to assist North Wales Police with the search for a person missing in the Clwydian Hills. Given the weather there was considerable concern for their welfare.


We spent many hours searching alongside Police Officers, including NWP Drone Unit, a SARDA Wales dog and handler, a Coastguard helicopter and a National Police Air Service helicopter.


The missing person was eventually located safe and well shortly before midnight. They were very cold, but otherwise OK. One of our team medics carried out an assessment, before the casualty was transported off the hill in a team Landrover.
