SEARCH – Constantine (27/11/22)

The team were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police at 00:20 Sunday morning to assist with the search of a high-risk missing female near to Constantine (close to the Helford Passage).

Two teams alongside a controller searched fields, tracks and wooded areas until the early hours of the morning. Also in attendance were police dog teams and the police helicopter.

The team completed all of our allocated search areas at 05:00 and were stood down, to resume the search in the daylight.

We were re-tasked at 11:00 to search additional areas, alongside colleagues from East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team. A water team consisting of both West and East Cornwall team members were also deployed as various water hazards were present.

Following eight hours of searching, we were once again stood down pending further police investigations at 19:00.
