Missing woman found in Buxton

A former New Mills woman who went missing from her home in Cheadle has been found.

To the relief of her family and friends Cheryl Ward, 38, who had not been seen since 8.30am on Monday, was found on Wednesday afternoon.

Her family, who had become increasingly concerned for her welfare, believed she may have been in the High Peak area. Cheryl had lived in New Mills for a number of years until moving to her family home in Cheadle in April due to her ill health.

On Wednesday afternoon Cheryl was found in Buxton and is now receiving treatment in hospital.
