Newton Abbott firefighters, along with numerous other organizations, were called to assist in a missing person search in the late hours of Tuesday, November 8.

15-year-old Dillon Brown of Orchard Park had not returned home within the usual time frame, and a call by family to Orchard Park police led to an eventual organized search effort.

The search team consisted of police from Orchard Park and Hamburg, Hamburg Emergency Services, the Orchard Park Fire District, New York State Forest Rangers, the Niagara Frontier Search and Rescue Team, and members of the Newton Abbott, Big Tree, Woodlawn, and Hamburg fire companies.

Dillon was located unharmed well into the morning hours by police.
