SEARCH – Tuckingmill (13/06/2020)
Yesterday evening team search managers were contacted by Devon & Cornwall Police with regards to an ongoing missing person enquiry. As part of the investigation, the team were requested to search areas of rough ground and parkland in the Tuckingmill area and also the local stream, adits and a small pond. The search was scheduled for this morning, with 25 team members deploying to high-priority search areas.
We were able to deploy two water teams, including one to search the small pond. Due to the nature of this muddy, urban waterbody the team chose to search using our rescue sled for safety. After five hours in the valley, the team were stood down as enquiries continue.
