A 68 year old woman from the town had been reported missing after friends raised concerns about her well-being.
The Team was tasked with searching the banks of the nearby Dyfi river, working as far down as Derwenlas. Volunteer Coast Guard teams made bank searches from Dyfi junction upstream to meet up with our searchers.
Fire service boats and two camera drones, the Police helicopter, RNLI craft from Borth and Aberdyfi and police search dogs were also operating in the area.
At dusk, given the extra hazard presented to searchers, along with the time they had already been operational, it was decided to stand down for the night.
