Our second call from North Wales Police in the early hours of Tuesday was to a missing person from Prestatyn. Given the information available it was decided that the best action was to request a trailing search dog from Search and Rescue Dog Association, Wales (SARDA, Wales). Enquires continued through to today when the missing person was located out of our search area.

The team was called on Sunday at 1pm by Dyfed Powys Police to a report of a lady with a lower leg injury at Pystyll Rhaeadr. Unfortunately she was near the top of the waterfall. The team responded with two Landrovers.
In view of the location and the resulting expected long carry off, we requested assistance from the Coastguard helicopter from Caernarfon.
When the helicopter arrived we worked with a Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust crew and assisted with loading the casualty into the Helicopter before she was flown to hospital.
Get well soon
Thanks again to Phil from the Cafe at the falls for his assistance today.
