Hampshire Search and Rescue recently responded to an overnight call from Hampshire Constabulary to look for a missing person, who was located safe and well after several hours’ searching. This was the 800th Callout for our all-volunteer charity, to search for vulnerable and at-risk missing people on behalf of the police, since their formation in 2003. They were assisted by Hampshire Search and Rescue Dogs and, by coincidence, this was their 100th search in 2020.
HANSAR say the 800th Callout is not a cause for celebration, but a time for reflection. “We think of those we have tried to help over the years and will continue to do so on behalf of the police and our local communities.”
