The walker was found asleep in his car at Horton in Ribblesdale

A search for a missing Yorkshire Three Peaks walker was called off after he was found asleep in his car.

The 43-year-old man was reported missing when he failed to meet fellow walkers in Horton in Ribblesdale.

He had been left to make his own way off Pen-y-ghent after complaining of feeling unwell.

His companions raised the alarm three hours later and the Cave Rescue Organisation sent a small team to investigate.

A team spokesperson said: “On arrival in Horton it was quickly established that the missing walker was safe and well, having fallen asleep in his car.”

The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge involves the ascent of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a 39km (24-mile) circuit with the aim of completing the walk in 12 hours or less.
