SEARCH – Porthtowan (07/11/23)

At 13.15 yesterday, the team were requested by Devon & Cornwall Police to assist with the search of a high-risk missing person in the Porthowan area.

The teams covered a number of search areas, working alongside St Agnes Coastguard Search & Rescue Team, H. M. Coastguard Portreath Rescue Team, Police Helicopter and Police Drones. Merryn and her handler, from Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England were also attendance.

As all of the requested areas were concluded, we were stood down at 18.30 pending further police investigations.

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.
