We were contacted out by Dyfed PowysPolice at 14.10on Saturday afternoon.

A 32 year old, none caving, male had entered Chartist Cave at about 11.30 for a 'quick look'' and as he had not returned by 12.30 his mother walked back to the Llangynydr - Ebbw Vale road, stopped a motorist and called the police.

The guy and his mother had 'googled' Charist Cave and made finding it their target for the days walk. Having found it the guy had a quick look in (he had a Petzl head torch and hand lamp) came out and after looking at a couple of other sites decided to have another look in Chartist. This was at 11.30 and after an hour his mother decided to walk back the way they had come towards Ebbw ValeĀ  and raise the alarm. The missing person was located about 60m into the cave (with a decent Petzl head torch but no helmet) having got confused and unable to find the way out. He was escorted down from the cave by Team Members and Dyfed-Powys Police and the incident was closed at 16:20.
