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.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
