A 30 year old man was reported missing by his girlfriend. Two small search parties and one SARDA member searched the Crinkle Crags area but found nothing. The man turned up safe and welt the following day (1 /12/88) having spent the night on High Raise, Great Langdale.
A well intentioned man reported seeing a man shouting for help. Believing that a climbing accident may have occurred on Pavey Ark, team members searched the area, with the assistance of a helicopter. Nothing was found so the search was called off. While descending Mill Gyhll, team members saw three youths 'raving' to a portable cassette player. They ran away when approached. Draw your own conclusions.
