A Police spokesperson confirmed that officers requested the helicopter to search for a missing person, who was later found safe and well.

Residents online were hoping that the helicopter scramble wasn't the result of another hoax call.

In regards to that incident the Force told NEMM that officers have made contact with the caller but no charges have been made as yet.
