Incident 21/2006

At 17:24 Hrs GMP, paged the Team for assistance with a search for a missing male in the Radcliffe area of Manchester. A full Team call out was paged at 18:08 Hrs and members began to respond to the RVP.

Call out contacts were already in talks with GMP as to where areas were to be searched. As the last search party was being dispatched to start their search area, news came in that a potential sighting of the missing male had been reported in Little Lever.

As Police Officers were checking the sighting, the last Search Party went out to start their search area, as soon as they had started their area, news came in that the sighting was indeed positive and our missing male had been found safe and well.

All Bolton MRT search efforts were then stood down at 20.25 Hrs, these amounted to 23 Team Members and our Search Dog Team of Handler Dave Marsh, Search Dog Chi & Trainee Trailing Search Dog Sniff, together with full catering support and control of the search being done from our control trailer.
