The man, one of a group walking on the mountain, had been suffering the effects of heat through the day, and at one point was reported to have become unresponsive. He had apparently recovered sufficiently to attempt to walk off the mountain alone down the Minffordd path whilst one of the others from the group returned to their car, parked elsewhere, and planned to meet him at the Minffordd car park.
When the friend arrived at Minffordd, the casualty was not present. The friend back-tracked up the mountain as far as the place where the man had last been seen but still did not encounter the casualty, and at this point a request for assistance was placed with North Wales Police.
As Team members were making their way to the incident, news came through that the man had been located, and that no further assistance was required.
