Helicopter drops lost couple in Snowdonia at car

A couple who got lost while walking in Snowdonia were tracked down by an RAF helicopter crew who were able to drop them off next to their car.

The crew were called out to help the young couple on Saturday night who had got lost while walking near Dolgellau.

They tracked them down after providing a map grid reference.

The Sea King crew based at Valley on Anglesey was able to land nearby and gave the couple a lift back to where their car was parked.

Both were cold but unharmed.
