The team was called out in the late evening to assist North Yorkshire police in searching for a vulnerable elderly gentleman. The 89 year old had failed to return home in his car following a hospital appointment, and given the weather conditions concerns were raised for his safety and well-being. A small team from Grassington was despatched to locate the gentleman & his car and searched areas around Pateley Bridge & the Nidderdale area. After an extensive search no car was found and the team was stood down. Subsequent good news, the gentleman was found by a local Grassington man in the Wharfedale area.
