Incident 40/2013

In a continuation of our incident 38 and 39/2013, the team once again journeyed to Burscough to resume our search for Karen Simpson.

Bolton MRT and Bowland Pennine MRT team members commenced searching shortly after their arrival.

At around 10:30 this morning the team learned the sad news that a body had been found in a field on the outskirts of Burscough. This was later confirmed to be the body of Karen Simpson.

Both Bolton MRT and Bowland Pennine MRT would like to pass on their condolences to the family and friends of Karen Simpson.

In total, seven Bolton MRT members assisted in this search operation.
