We've been part of one of the biggest searches conducted in recent years all day today looking for a missing male from Ivybridge. Multiple agencies were involved including: - Our own team volunteers, - Devon & Cornwall Police, - Search and Rescue dogs, - Devon and Cornwall Police dogs - Devon and Somerset Fire dogs - Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team - Plymouth, - Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue, - National Police Air Service helicopter, - Devon and Cornwall 4x4 Response - and more than 100 members of the public. We arrived on site at 08:00 this morning. Slightly later than planned as our team vehicles assisted with advanced warning using our blue-lights, and clearing of an accident on the A38 at Rattery caused by a member of the public's vehicle spinning in the icy conditions - we hope she's OK. Teams searched areas to the north of Ivybridge including Erme Woods and the moor up to the north of Harford Moorgate and Burford Down focusing on wooded areas up until stand down around 4pm this afternoon. Unfortunately, the man we were searching for remains missing despite a few unconfirmed sighting of him during the day.
