RAF Valley MRT was tasked by the ARCC to assist Keswick MRT with the search for a 75 YOM suffering from dementia. The man had been missing since 1530 that day after he had wandered off from his minders. Following two sightings near the village of Portinscale, troops were tasked to search areas on either side of the A66. The misper was located by Valley troops on the B5029 at 0115. The misper was oblivious to how long he had been walking. He was subsequently transported to Keswick MRT base, where he was handed over to the local Police. Valley MRT was stood down by the ARCC and returned to FOB at Mungrisdale for routine training.
