We were called at 20:00 by Derbyshire Police to search for two adult walkers who had become lost and benighted on Kinder Plateau. We were able to use Sarcall PhoneFind technology to determine their exact location around Crowden Head. We were able to speak to them on their mobile to determine that they were not injured, though very wet and exhausted.
Two Kinder parties were dispatched to find them and walk them back to Edale Cross, where they met up with our Landrovers, to be driven back down to base.
