On Saturday 4th January 2014, we were involved in a joint search operation with and in direct assistance of Greater Manchester Police, for a missing man in circumstances giving GMP cause for concern for his welfare.
GMP Missing Person Search Manager Chris Moody subsequently gave his thanks to the team, which were recorded within the ‘News’ pages of our website, as was the Incident itself. (14 -2014)
Today our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE received a very kind letter from GMP Robert Potts, Chief Superintendent, South Manchester Division, in regards to this search operation;
“Dear Mr Rhodes.”
