Teenager who took ‘wrong turn’ sparks search
A teenager who took a wrong turning while out for a late evening walk in a south of Scotland forest ended up prompting a major search operation.
The Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team was called out by police at about 2.15am to Newcastleton Forest. They called out Moffat Mountain Rescue Team and put three other teams in northern England on standby.
The 17-year-old was eventually traced at about 6am having had a “bit of an epic” while trying to find his way. A Search and Rescue Dog Association dog was also sent to the scene.
