A MAN who went missing after a night out has been found safe and well.
Police launched an investigation to find Craig Lowes, 27, after he was last seen on Sunday afternoon.
He had failed to return home after a night out on Saturday and his family and friends had grown increasingly concerned for his safety and left several worried messages on the social networking site Facebook.
The cable-puller, who lives in Raby Street, on Hartlepool’s Headland, turned up yesterday morning.
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “We would like to thank members of the public and the media for their assistance.”
The last sighting of the former Henry Smiths School pupil, who has two sisters and a brother, had been of him getting out of a taxi in West View Road, in Hartlepool, at 3.15pm on Sunday.
He had also been spotted in Church Street bars The Odd Bar and Nexus in the early hours of Sunday morning.
