Search in Redmond Forest, NW of Albany

On Monday evening (10/12/12) scent specific tracking team Glenys and Manhon were called out to a search north west of Albany in Redmond Forest. The missing person had sustained injuries whilst on their dirt bike and became lost, as such the family and authorities were concerned for the well being of the MP.

Glenys and Manhon began their search from the site of the crash and followed the MP's scent along dense bushland and creek beds. The search was made difficult by poor radio reception and deep crossings along the creek. After many hours searching, the search team was stood down in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Fortunately not long after, the MP was eventually found and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries.
