Incident Report #58 2002

A man walking his dogs became lost. His wife reported him overdue and Patterdale MRT mounted a search. We were requested to assist. He was located on Hart Crag at 2am and escorted down to Ambleside. He had no torch and only barely adequate clothing. With weather conditions being bad and a very poor forecast the following day, the possibility of him not surviving was very real. Fortunately his whistles were heard over the wind and he was found. He was escorted down to safety by members from both teams.
