An elderly man had not been seen for 28 hours. His intended route was searched by the team. RAF Boulmer and Patterdale MRT. He was found in Patterdale village where he had stayed in a B&B. However he had telephoned the police the previous night stating his intentions. Seems that communications had a minor hiccup.
