Incident 68/2009

At 17:15 this evening the team was contacted by Greater Manchester Police to discuss a possible search for a missing vulnerable male in the Hawkshaw area (Northwest of Bury).

Due to the concern for the welfare of the missing male it was decided that a search would be conducted and the team assembled in Hawkshaw at 19:00.

A search involving two GMP Missing Person Search managers, GMP Divisional officers, and the GMP Air Support Unit helicopter and 28x Bolton MRT team members began shortly after our arrival.
