MISSING man Michael Hartshorne has been found safe and well and has now been returned home to his family.

Reports that the 63-year-old from Mannington Park had been discovered by police came through to his family at around 2am, and came in the nick of time after a two day search.

Michael had left for work at 5.45am on Tuesday morning but never arrived after what should have been a five or 10 minute journey.

His family were becoming increasingly concerned that the worker, who has a heart condition, had disappeared without his daily medication, but thankfully he was found in the early hours of the morning.
