Agencies Involved: Patterdale MRT, Keswick MRT, Coast Guard Helicopter, Lake District Search Dogs
Patterdale MRT requested Keswick support in a search for a couple of walkers who were overdue on their walk on the Helvellyn range. They were last seen near to Sticks Pass and their intended route was towards Helvellyn and back down to Glenridding via Catstye Cam. Keswick team searched the main paths on the Thirlmere side of the Helvellyn ridge and after hearing that the missing persons were found on Whiteside, went to help with the re-warming effort as they were both in various stages of hypothermia. A Coast Guard helicopter was deployed and airlifted the two people to Carlisle hospital.
