Callout number 8 of the year took us towards the southwest boundary of our area to help search for a 53 year old male missing from the estate at Arden Hall near Hawnby.
Twenty of us, and search dog Bonnie, searched in very wet and sometimes misty conditions from 0130 until around 0500. With the feeling that the missing person was avoiding us we stood down with the intention to returning in daylight if needed.
