SEARCH – Newquay (20-21/06/21)
Late yesterday afternoon the team were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police to assist in the search for a male missing from a holiday park near Newquay since early morning.
Through the afternoon 22 team members searched every single unoccupied caravan on the site, then focusing on scrubland areas in the complex. A water team from East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team also joined us to search the fishing lakes on site. With no sign of the missing person, teams stood down at 22:45 and police investigations will continue overnight.
On Monday team members resumed the search for a 46 year old male missing from a caravan park near Newquay. With the help once again of East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team and Devon & Cornwall Police specialist officers, teams continued to search areas of thick vegetation and woodland around the site that we were unable to access in darkness on Sunday.
Mid-afternoon, one of our search teams located the body of a male and worked with Police to access the site and carry the body out to the roadhead. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased at this time.
