The team was called out by Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team requesting assistance with a search for a high risk person who had left home late morning on the 16th. The police requested that a search of Middleton Woods was undertaken. They contain a large number of bluebells and are considered a likely spot for the missing person to have visited, though, with the time elapsed since they went missing they could be a long way from home. The team searched the woods completing the task as it got dark, and stood down for the night pending further information. The missing person was subsequently located in Scarborough by North Yorkshire Police.
