Many telephone calls were made from Barnoldswick Police Station to Whitby seeking information to pass on to anxious relatives, but the situation was very confused.
Inspector David Cunningham called hourly during Friday without obtaining any further news of the missing men. Each time he left his telephone number 29, but nobody called back.
Neither Fred Reddiough nor Anthony Waterworth knew what happened to the others.
A small group of people waited outside the Police Station in the rain.
