A Hartlepool man who sparked an appeal for help when he went missing has been found, police have confirmed.

Stuart Hare, 44, left Stranton Cemetery at around 10.50am on Friday and was believed to be making his way to Hartlepool station, but had not boarded a train.

Cleveland Police appealed for help to track him down.

Now officers have confirmed he was located in Cumbria at the weekend.

A force spokesman said: "We would like to thank those people who shared our appeal."
