FRIDAY 24TH MARCH 2023
The Team deployed for the second day running today at the request of North Yorkshire Police to continue searching in the Great Ayton area for a missing man. Fourteen Cleveland MRT members were deployed for approximately 8-hours.
RAF Leeming MRT also deployed a number of personnel in support of the search and Swaledale MRT (who attended yesterday) again provided advice regarding underground searching. Many thanks to both Teams for their invaluable support and also to other people who contacted the Team regarding advice on mines in the area, which was passed to the Police whose enquiries to trace the missing man continued.
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
