SEARCH – Penzance (18/06/24)

We were requested by Devon & Cornwall Police at 10.30 to assist in an ongoing search for a high-risk missing person in Penzance.

Maritime and Coastguard Agency colleagues alongside the Police had already started searching areas.

After searching possible areas for over four hours we received information that the missing person had been located safe and well outside of our search areas. We were then stood down at 16.00.


All of our team members are volunteers. We’re available 24/7, 365 days of the year to assist the emergency services to search for missing, vulnerable and injured people across West Cornwall.

We rely on public donations to operate.

We are members of Mountain Rescue England and Wales and the British Cave Rescue Council – BCRC.
