The informant visited 7 weeks ago. He saw this tent and also saw a man, who appeared to be a bird-watcher carrying binoculars, in the vicinity of the tent but did not speak to the man and cannot be sure he was associated with the tent. Tent now has a lot of litter around it and no sign of a recent fire. The informant did not open the tent. Concerns were raised for well being of any occupant.
A discussion was had with North Wales Police over what response was requested from MR, and it was agreed that an urgent night-time search was disproportionate to the situation. The initial intention was to send a PCSO to investigate in daylight but the team call-handler dealing with the call, and living nearby, offered to investigate the tent the following morning. The tent was found to have been abandoned for some weeks with litter, foam mat, duffle coat and tent having been chewed by animals. There was no signs of recent habitation. The tent and litter were cleared from site by the Team volunteer.
