SEARCH – Chiverton Cross (11-12/06/23)
We were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police at 23:00 on Sunday to assist with a search for a high-risk missing male, last seen in the Chiverton Cross area, near Truro.
Search teams, working alongside Search Dog Merryn (Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England), the Police and Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service searched through the night in rural and urban locations, eventually being stood down at 5am.
We were re-tasked to commence the search on Monday at 10am. Again, foot teams worked alongside the Police, a drone team, the Police helicopter and SD Merryn. East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team were also requested to assist in the search with Search Dog TegOrs in attendance.
Following further search areas being covered, a body of a male was located in the Chiverton area at around 12.55pm on Monday. The family of the deceased has been informed of this development, and our thoughts are with his family and friends.
Devon & Cornwall Police would like to thank members of the public for assisting with area searches.
