A search was started when a 43 year old man from Sheffield was reported missing by his friend, who had left him at the summit of Hart Crag at 4.00 p.m. Four more teams and S.A.R.D.A. were called in at first light to continue the search. The search was called off when the man was found on Windermere railway station at 10.30 a.m. Footnote: This man had spent all night in a Guest House in Grasmere and was returning home by train. There seems to have been some disagreement between these so-called friends. I only wish that they could have sorted it out themselves without involving the Mountain Rescue Teams. Weather conditions: RAIN, GALE FORCE WINDS, DARK, FLOODS.
