Search for missing walker

Have your say

BUXTON Mountain Rescue and a search dog were called to locate a lost walker on Kinder Scout on Friday.

The Kinder Team had begun the search for the 40-year-old man and then called for assistance from the Buxton and Glossop team so the search area could be widened. Weather conditions were poor with low cloud, mist, rain and darkness leading to very poor visibility.

The man was eventually discovered by the Kinder Team near Kinder Downfall and taken to the team’s Hayfield base.
