A RESCUE service which helps police search for vulnerable missing people launched its latest campaign today.

Hampshire Search and Rescue (Hansar) is taking part in a national initiative called the Herbert Protocol. The scheme is named after George Herbert, a war veteran who had dementia and died when he went missing on his way to his childhood home.

It ensures families are prepared for an emergency if someone goes missing with the use of the Life History Questionnaire. It keeps a record of background information which is made available to police if the person goes missing. Visit hantsar.org.
