Missing man is found safe


A Somerset man who went missing from the New Mills area on February 28 has been found safe and well.

Luke Simmonds travelled to the High Peak from his home in the Wells area to visit extended family but left after an argument.

Police were becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare because of health issues and the fact that he left without any money.

Officers had been out looking for the 30-year-old and a missing person appeal had also been publicised on social networking sites, but Luke has now been found safe and well outside of the Avon and Somerset area.

Avon and Somerset Police said they would like to thank everyone who helped to look for Luke, and who shared the missing person appeal on Facebook and Twitter.
