Appeal: Missing Caver – your help needed!

9/12/2017 Update: Please note we understand that the search for Michael Wood is now over.

Cavers and walkers across the UK, particularly in the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks area, are asked to be especially vigilant over the coming days after Greater Manchester Police at Bolton South issued an appeal for a missing caver and walker, Michael Wood, also known as Squirrel.

Friends have confirmed that despite his mobility problems he is capable of walking long distances and we are therefore asking everyone to be on the lookout for any sign of Michael over the next few days. In practical terms if you are up on the fells please make a point of checking as many entrances and shakeholes as possible, perhaps varying your route to and from caves, and try and cover as wide an area as you can.

Michael has been missing for around a month, although he lives in Bolton he has a static caravan in Clapham in North Yorkshire. He is described as a white male, very slim, 5 feet 7 inches tall with mousey brown greying hair.

Please help to raise awareness by sharing this post as widely as possible.

If you have any information that may help please contact GMP on 101 quoting log number 939 – 04/12/17
