Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team was called out by Cumbria Police to assist in the search for a missing woman. She had gone missing from the Watermillock area and, at that point, not been seen for about 24hrs.

23 team members responded and searched land bordering the A592 under Gowbarrow Fell. The team was further assisted by 3 general search dogs and a scenting dog from the Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs. The team searched for about 8 hours without locating the missing person.

The following day, around 1300hrs, the team was again called upon for further assistance as the woman was still missing. However, the team was delighted to be stood down within minutes after hearing the good news that she had just been located safe and well.
