Callout 14/04/2016 - Three missing teenage walkers

April 15, 2016

 

Two team members assisted Police Scotland and Rescue helicopter 999 with a search for a group of three teenage male walkers who were reported missing late last night.

 

The group of seven had initially set off for Goat fell yesterday afternoon and had then split up with four of the Group returning back to Brodick and the other three of the group deciding to carry on to traverse over Stacach ridge, North Goat fell, Cir Mhor, A'Chir, Beinn Tarsuinn, Beinn Nuis and then back into Brodick. 

 

After an extensive search with Rescue helicopter 999 using infra- red thermal imaging equipment and Police Scotland checking all access roads the three teenagers were eventually found by our deputy team leader in the Glen Iorsa area after they had taken the wrong direction coming down off Beinn Nuis.

 

Although very tired and cold the three teenagers were luckily unharmed.

 

AMRT would like to advise anyone venturing up our hills that although the daylight hours are getting longer, it is still very cold at night and those intending to do lengthy routes up the mountains should be adequately equipped, have a map and compass and know how to use them.
