A mountain rescue team was called out after a two walkers got lost in low cloud on a Snowdonia mountain.

Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team was alerted about 5.20pm on Sunday when the pair called for help from Cadair Idris.

Team member Graham O’Hanlon said: “Having little information with which to work, and with the informant’s phone going straight to voicemail, the team was deployed to search the Mynydd Moel area of the mountain.

“Shortly after team volunteers set out, North Wales Police reported further contact with the pair, a man and woman from Kent, who said that the cloud had lifted and they believed they were back on the right track.”

A small group from the rescue team continued up the mountain and met the walkers to check on their welfare and ensure that they were safely heading downwards.

The rescue ended at 6.45pm.
