We were alerted by Cleveland Police to assist in the search for a vulnerable Middlesbrough teenager who was missing on Roseberry Topping.
The Team quickly deployed members on foot to search the main routes up Roseberry and one of our Landrover ambulances to drive through Aireyholme Farm to access the hilltop from the South.
The missing person was quickly located by the foot party and helped down the hillside to his family in the carpark at Newton under Roseberry.
23 team members responded to the callout that lasted two and a half hours.
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
