SEARCH – St Austell (27/03/24)

At 13.00 we were called out by Devon & Cornwall Police to assist East Cornwall Search & Rescue Team in the search of a high risk missing person in the St Austell area.

As team members arrived, the East SRT search manager started to plan the search areas to have members deployed as quick as possible. Thankfully at 15:34 the police received information that the missing person had been located safe and well out side of the search area.


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.
