Misper had been reported from 10am the previous day. Although aged 80, he was known to be a regular walker and so search effort was concentrated in the Otley area. Nothing found during first night search. Misper returned home from a 2 day ‘walking ‘expedition’ the following day, having failed to inform his family of his plans.
