At 20:50 on Wednesday, January 23rd, Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team and Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team were tasked by An Garda Síochána to assist in the search for a missing person in Cloon Wood.
The search was suspended after several hours, and resumed at first light. The operation was stood down at 11:38 after the missing person's remains were found by search and rescue dog Ziggy and his handler. We offer our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. We would also like to thank the Search and Rescue Dog Association (Ireland)for their help.
