SEARCH – St Austell (12/10/23)


12/10/23 – St Austell

At 03.30 this morning, the team received a call from Devon & Cornwall Police to assist East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team with the search of a high-risk missing person in the St Austell area. East Cornwall SRT had been out searching for a number of hours already.

The teams covered a large amount of the search areas, working alongside Mevagissey Coastguard, St Austell Coastguard, Police Drones and Police Dogs.

As the team started to conclude all the allocated areas, the Search Manager received information that the missing person had made their way home safely.

The team was stood down at 08.30 and returned back to West Cornwall ready for the day ahead.


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.
