Team called to assist our colleagues at Bowland Pennine Mountain Rescue Team.

At 09.36hrs this morning the team was paged directly by the Deputy Leader of Bowland Pennine MRT requesting the teams assistance with a search for a missing child in the Lancaster area.

Our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE answered the pager call, informing BPMRT that the Bolton MRT was already committed to a local event, (See article on Help for Heroes events) but would be able to lend its assistance from early afternoon onwards.

Our Team Leader then paged the Bolton MRT membership to inform them to be prepared to assist BPMRT later in the day.

Shortly after this at 09.49hrs we received a pager call from BPMRT that Lancashire Constabulary Officers had thankfully located the missing child at a friends address safe and well.

This call on the teams services has not been logged as a team incident, and is recorded here for information purposes only.
