BORDER COLLIE FOUND
LITTLE BRANDY FOUND
A very busy 24 hours for the team has ended this evening safe in knowledge that little Brandy, missing after a walk yesterday morning is now back home with his family after being found by the drone team this lunchtime.
Brandy had gone missing in a very difficult desert area. After his family searching all day yesterday, the drone team was contacted in the late afternoon for support. A team member made their way to the area and met with Brandys owner and family members. The scale of the area soon became apparent and a decision was made to make use of the teams drone to scour the very steep sides of the valley and look for any signs. Whilst this was happening, a helicopter pilot friend of the family was covering large areas of open ground on the lookout for anything that could a sign of Brandy. As night fell the search was called off as it would have been unsafe to continue.
Around 12:45, We, along with a team volunteer, heard a noise in the gorse near to where Brandy had disappeared, and a position in which scent items had been left. After a brief search of the area, Brandy popped his head out of the gorse and that as they say was that. We secured him with a lead and carried him out of the desert where we met with his family and reunited them.
