Search For Missing Gentleman, Cudworth.

The team was called out on Sunday the 17th Nov at 13:16hrs to the Cudworth area of Barnsley to help South Yorkshire Police with an ongoing search for missing 72-year-old Derek Atkinson.

A search plan was put together and sections deployed along with 3 search dogs from Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England, also in support was the National Police Air Service.

Sadly, one of our sections located a body on open land and although a formal identification at the time of writing has yet to take place, police believe it to be the body of Derek Atkinson, his family have been informed.

We send our sincere condolences to the gentleman’s family and friends.
