The team was called out at 21:27 last night to assist Devon and Cornwall Police with a search for a missing Male in the Starcross area who had been missing for over 24 hours.

Multiple agencies were involved with our team volunteers working alongside 2 Mountain Rescue search dogs, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue USAR, North Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team and the Police helicopter.

Just after midnight the gentleman was found towards the end of Dawlish Warren by one of the search dogs.

After a check over by our cas carers and Police officers the gentleman was walked back to a vehicle to be taken home and reunited with his partner.

A good outcome. Team members were stood down around 1am and returned home to bed.
