A party of 6 fell runners set off from Aber Falls with the intention of running to the Ogwen Valley, before running up Y Gribin ridge and descending to Llanberis.

Debriefing ascertained that he was last seen at the style close to SH674610 and was descending on the fence line towards the A5. A search area was formulated with many troops searching the area behind Bryn Poeth including further north from PLS, east of Bodesi Farm, west of Bryn Poeth and south towards the A5 road. After being unable to locate him a request was placed to NWP for NPAS or drone to be utilised for an air search as terrain had many dips and dead ground. Car parks and his vehicle in Llanberis were also checked.
