SEARCH – Helston (30/08/2019)

Just after 3pm, team search managers were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police to discuss an ongoing search for a 12-year-old child missing from the Helston area. Team members were put on stand-by to allow a rapid deployment if needed, and we also requested the assistance of members from East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team. As search plans were being considered, a report came through that the young girl had been seen on the coast path and she was located soon after by officers in Praa Sands and returned home. This was a great outcome to what was developing into a major search effort.
