Missing men near Cradock Peak in George

According to a member of the search and rescue team, two of the three men who went missing in thick fog and rain near Cradock Peak on Tuesday 30 January 2018, has been found unharmed where they were hiding from the elements.

Rescue personnel were told that the third missing person started walking down the mountain in an effort to search for help. Search and rescue teams are still trying to locate the third person.

Three members of the Working On Water (WOW) organisation are missing in the area of Cradock Peak in George.

It is believed that the men were busy working on fire breaks when unexpected rain and fog caused poor visibility, leaving the men stranded on the mountain.

A search and rescue team of approximately 30 people made up of personnel from Firstcare, Wild Fire Support, Metro Rescue Services, George Fre Department, Eden911 (A01 and RV01) as well as Lions Alert Team were mobilised.

Unfortunately the search and rescue effort had to be postponed due to bad light, thick mist, and deteriorating weather conditions on Tuesday 30 January 2018.

The search and rescue operation will resume at first light on Wednesday 31 January 2018.

Wild News will be in contact with rescue personnel and will post updates on the situation as updates become available
