Twenty members of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team and four search dogs found a pensioner who disappeared in Tideswell.
The team was called to the village in the early hours of Tuesday morning after receiving reports that the 69-year-old man had gone missing from his home.
A team spokesman said: “The weather conditions, which included very heavy rain, gave rise to concerns for the man’s safety and wellbeing.
“He was located within two hours, walking along the road near to Ravenstor Youth Hostel. He was checked and found to be fit and well, although very wet.”
