At 18:16 Patterdale MRT was alerted by Langdale Ambleside Mountain Rescue team, via Cumbria Police, for our 5th call out in 2 days. This time it was to assist in the search for a young person who was missing from the Kirkstone Pass area. A few unconfirmed sightings of him had been reported down the valley.
