Callouts 2012

Stogumber, Somerset

Just as the Exmoor Search and Rescue Team were assembling in South Molton for a training session, the Avon and Somerset Police asked for assistance in the search for a 75 year old man in a rural location between Stogumber and Crowcombe.

The gentleman was known to travel quite long distances on his electrically powered wheelchair and had on previous occasions got into difficulties.  Whilst country lanes in the area were being searched, a policeman found the missing person stuck in a hedge in a field near his home.
