A rescue team went to the aid of a dog and its owners who were disoriented on the highest hill in the Clwydian Range.

North East Wales Search and Rescue Team was alerted by police about 2.55pm today after a pair of concerned walkers contacted them from Moel Famau.

A Newsar spokesperson said: “It was a sunny summer’s day and the pair were uninjured, but they were concerned for their dog which was suffering the effects of the heat and they had run out of water.

“The walkers contacted the police for assistance to find the best and shortest way out of their predicament and as a result, Newsar was called out.

“As the pair had a smartphone, the team used the Sarloc system to help pinpoint the party’s exact location. One team member headed towards them on foot whilst two more attended in one of the team’s Land Rovers.

“The two walkers and their dog were picked up and driven back to the road and their own vehicle.”

Deputy team leader Gerald Davison said: “We’re pleased that Newsar was able to help the walkers with their dog today and that he recovered well once he had rested and had drunk extra water.”
