The 82 year old Roy Giblin went missing on the 8th of June after heading out for an evening walk in Abergele, North Wales.

The police used boats, helicopters and a drone to search for Giblin. Eventually, 18 hours after his disappearance, local authorities located and rescued the elderly man with the help of a Matrice 300 RTK.

The drone was essential for the searching operations as Giblin’s daughter, Lauren Delaney noted in reports: “Without that drone, he didn’t stand a chance”. The Abergele police invested in a Matrice 300 RTK in April and since then they used it for more than 250 successful operations.
