People searching in the dark

A missing man has been found in woodland near Swanmore after a large effort by Police and volunteer search and rescue teams.

A dog walker someone had spotted the Portsmouth man earlier in the day, and Hampshire Search And Rescue had been looking for him in the Meon Valley area.

A witness said: “I think he owes his life to the deligent efforts of the search and rescue teams and some good luck as exposure if he was out overnight could have proved fatal.”
