Incident Report #77 2003

A father and son were reported as missing on a walk from Langdale to Scafell. A search was organised with help from Keswick and Wasdale MRTs and SARDA. After a number of reported sightings by people camping in the area, they were located near Greta Ghyll on the Corridor Route at 6.30am. They were okay, but cold and were evacuated to Wasdale. It turns out that they had got to Scafell by asking directions, but seem to have run out of people to ask for directions back again!
