Chivenor helicopter joins search for missing Dartmoor walker
A SEARCH and rescue crew from RMB Chivenor assisted with an operation on Dartmoor in the early hours of this morning to try and locate a missing walker.
The helicopter was called out at around 2am to assist the Dartmoor Rescue group in locating the walker, but search conditions proved difficult due to thick fog.
A spokesperson from Chivenor said that the crew were unable to use their thermal imaging technology to help with locating the walker.
Instead, they used lights to help move around the rescue group who were carrying out the search on foot.
