At 20.50 yesterday the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team was called out to help West Yorkshire Police with a search for a vulnerable missing person in the Waterloo area of Huddersfield.

We asked our neighbouring teams, Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team and Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team for assistance and we quickly had 50 members of the three teams at the rendezvous in Morrisons’ car park. The picture shows how extensive the response was: all the vehicles shown are either team members’ or MR and Police response vehicles.

The search continued until 2am when the area we had been tasked to search had been covered.
