SEARCH – Tresillian (18/07/22)

At 21:00 yesterday the team were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police to assist South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust in the search for a male who had phoned saying that he was choking, but couldn’t be located by the emergency services.

The police carried out a search on his phone which put his position just outside of Truro towards Tresillian. The Police Drones team and a Police dog team could not locate him so they requested our assistance in a hasty search of the area.

We continued searching over a larger area until 11:00, and were then stood down as the ground was getting dangerous in the dark with steep slopes.

We were ready to resume the search today (Tuesday) but thankfully he was found by police over 1km closer to Truro at 02:30 and taken to hospital.
