Shortly before midnight on Thursday, February 2nd, An Garda Síochána tasked The Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team and Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team to assist in a search near Hollywood, Co Wicklow.
The search was for a 17-year-old male who went missing from his home earlier in the evening. There were concerns for the young man’s safety as weather conditions in the area were quite poor. Mountain rescue (MR) personnel responded, and began searching the area shortly after midnight. The missing man was found safe and well, and the operation was stood down at 02:30hrs.
MR would like to thank An Garda Síochána for their assistance, and also the Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA) who responded with a search dog and handler.
