Bayswater SES assist with search for missing 14 year old

Three teams from Bayswater SES assisted Police and other SES units with the search for missing 14 year old Dennis Dear who was lost in bush land south east of Perth.

Dennis was reported missing on his quad bike early Sunday morning. His bike was discovered abandoned later that night more than 8km from his departure point.

A Bayswater SES Vehicle Search Team co-ordinated 6 SES teams in an intensive late night foot search of the surrounding area which was called off at 00:30 hours.

Police and SES resumed the search early next morning, the Bayswater SES Bike Search Team's discovery of the quad bike keys around 2km from the abandoned vehicle helping to focus the search area.

Dennis was found by SES at around 11:00 hours dehydrated but safe.

"It was a great result on the search today in really hard conditions."
- Bill White, Bayswater SES Bike Search Team Leader
