The Team was called out at 11.30pm on 27th December to assist West Yorkshire Police with a search for an elderly gentleman aged 83. We were also joined by members of the Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team.

The search continued until 3.30am on the 28th Dec when one of our search teams found the missing person in a wooded area.

First aid was given and the missing person was carried to a waiting ambulance on one of the Team's stretchers.

There is a West Yorkshire Police press release relating to this incident which can be read here.
