The team were called to assist North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service to search for a male seen entering the River Ouse in central York in the early hours of the morning.

Two river bank teams were deployed to search the water margins of the river downstream of the center of York to Bishopthorpe just past the A64 bypass.   Having completed that search the team were asked to repeat the earlier search of the river edge through York upstream to the last know position of the missing person.

Sadly nothing was found and we were stood down as the Police regional marine search team commenced a more detailed search in and under the river.  In all twelve team members were deployed for eight and a half hours.
