We were contacted by the police to assist with the search for a vulnerable young lady in the New Mills and Hayfield area. Having succesfully located her previously on Cracken Edge, a search commenced in that area alongside the police using mountain rescue search dogs.
The search then moved to the Birch Vale area and she was located by the team crossing the road in New Mills, allowing the police to return her to safety.
