The National Police Air Service (NPAS) South West have released some FLIR footage of the moment when one of their aircrews found a high-risk missing male who was having a mental health crisis.
The male had been missing for nine hours before the aircrew, callsign NPAS 44, found him walking next to a stream in a heavily wooded area in Cornwall.
Once the highly-trained aircrew located the male, they guided ground units to his location.
Thanks to the swift action of the police, the male is now being given the support he needs.
