Missing woman found

A MISSING woman who sparked a police appeal has been found safe and well.

Concerns were raised after Dorothy Faulkner, 52, left her home in the Rossmere area of Hartlepool at 10am on Sunday before being spotted four hours later in the Seal Sands area, on the outskirts of town.

She did not contact her family all day and night, which is said to be out of character for her.

But Dorothy, who is known as Dot, was found safe and well yesterday afternoon in the Seaton Carew area
