Missing Pensioner Found

A pensioner from Kent who'd been missing for three days has been found safe and well.

71-year-old Bryn Mellor, who had dementia and a heart condition, was found in the garden of a derelict house in Sturry by a neighbour's dog just after 4.15pm.

Inspector Steve Parks said: 'Mr Mellor was conscious but suffering from mild exposure and has been taken to hospital for checks.

'He has also been reunited with his family.'

Mr Mellor went missing from his care home in Park View, Sturry at about 4.10pm on Tuesday 16 August.

In a statement the family said: “We are overjoyed to have Bryn back with us and would like to pass on our sincere thanks to everyone who has been involved in the search. That includes Kent Police, the Kent Search and Rescue volunteers, the community in Sturry, the soldiers from Howe Barracks and the media. They have all been brilliant.”
