At 17:16 Patterdale MRT received a second call of the day and New Year from the Police.

The team were tasked to search for a couple who had left Sykeside Campsite before lunch to go for a fellwalk but had become lost once darkness fell and dialled 999 for assistance. The team dispatched two search parties including 2 search dogs to the area of Scandale Pass. The pair, who weren't carrying a torch and had an intermittent mobile phone signal, were located at about 20:00 and escorted back to their campsite.

Walkers are reminded that a torch together with a map and compass are essential kit for all fell walks.
