30th November 2020 MISSING WOMAN FOUND!
Teesdale & Weardale Search & Mountain Resue Team spent much of yesterday searching for a missing farmers wife from Woodland nr Barnard Castle who had left home early yesterday and not been seen since. The team searched extensively in and around Hamsterley forest, assisted by Police and members of the rural community.
This morning, as team members were preparing to restart their search, the misper, Dawn Teesdale, walked into a friends house, safe and well, if a little cold and dirty. Good news. SB
