AN 82-year-old man who was reported missing from home has been found safe and well.

George “Slogger” Williams had not been seen by his family since leaving home in Creswell Avenue, Horden, around 11.45am on Friday.

But Durham Police have since said the pensioner has been found and have passed on thanks to those who shared their appeal via social networking sites and called the force with information regarding Mr Williams’s whereabouts.

The search had included Peterlee Police and the police helicopter and the alarm had been raised as Mr Williams, who walks with a stick, suffers from a number of medical conditions and can become easily confused.
