Shortly before 10pm on Tuesday night we were called by North Wales Police to assist two persons who were “geographically challenged” on Moel Famau after the onset of darkness and getting disorientated in the cloud and rain.
We used some phone technology to locate their position and then were able to provide directions to where we could collect them with a team vehicle. They were found unhurt and returned to their vehicle.
We know lots of you will think “you can’t get lost on Moel Famau”, but we know otherwise! When the cloud and mist rolls in and it starts to go dark everything starts to look the same and it is easy to get mislaid. So please be gentle with any comments.

We were called last night by North Wales Police to assist with the search for a person missing in a rural location near Abergele. Shortly after we started to deploy the good news came in that Police officers had located the missing person in Abergele and we stood down. We were also assisted by handlers and dogs from SARDA Wales.

North Wales Police called the team in the early hours of this morning after a couple got into difficulty walking near Llangollen. The incident site was not completely clear so, in cooperation with the casualty group, we used some phone technology to get a precise location. We were then able to direct Police Officers to the site while we started team members moving to assist. Shortly afterwards the group was located by Police Officers and assisted to safety and we stood down.
