As the search was ongoing the runner’s phone became available and the teams were able to get its location.
Police Scotland and the mountain rescue groups were able to locate the runner who was very cold and starting to become hypothermic.

A spokesperson for Moffat Mountain Rescue Team said: “Without phone technology to assist this could have been a long search.”
