Three Boys Missing on Reservoir Trip

Thursday, October 7, 2004

The Scotsman website is reporting this morning that a major search was continuing for three boys who went missing on a field trip to a reservoir.

The boys, aged nine, 12 and 13, disappeared on a visit to the Coldwell Reservoir at Widdop, near Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire, yesterday afternoon.

They were last seen at 4pm by carers from the Nook Children's Home in nearby Colne, Lancashire, where they lived.

The hunt began yesterday at about 6.30pm but was suspended at 3am today.

Police officers, the police helicopter and mountain rescue teams resumed the search at dawn.
