August 10th 1200hrs. We were asked to continue our search for the missing Great Broughton man. This time searching in daylight we swept the moorland area and the forestry around Hasty bank above the village of Great Broughton, near Stokesley.
The area were were searching was very challenging with many areas covered tall bracken and a lot of the forestry was very dense and covered with brambles.
16 members of the team searched until evening along with search dog Ollie and handler Ian from Swaledale team.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
