At around 1600 hrs Cumbria Police requested  assistance from the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team with regard concern for the welfare of a woman who had not returned to an agreed location after a walk.

The missing person had been on a walk on Gowbarrow Fell with her husband  and decided to turn back after feeling tired, with the intention of going back to Dockray where the car was parked.

Her husband continued on the planned walk and raised the alarm 4 hours later when he could not locate his wife back where the car was parked.

The rescue team leader travelled to Dockray and en route there stopped at the Aira Force car park and, by chance, located the missing person who had been looking for her husband. The couple were reunited back at Dockray.
