The whole Coastguard team was tasked to investigate reports that a female could be heard in distress in the Spittles / Back Venn area. A search of the immediate area was carried out with nothing found. Dorset police helicopter was launched and carried out a detailed search of the area using their heat seeking cameras. Again nothing was found and the search was temporarily stood down until first light. Daylight enabled a much more detailed and extensive search of the landslip which is peppered with areas of quicksand and bogs. Without any more information apparent overnight, the search was stood down with nothing further found after another three hours.
