A MISSING man who was last spotted in Brierfield has been found safe and well by police.

John Ritchie, 52, was last seen in Wharfedale Avenue at around 3pm on Sunday until he was discovered in Fence this morning.

Officers had become increasingly concerned for his welfare on Monday when he had failed to contact family in 24 hours.

Police, who said Mr Ritchie had connections with Nelson, Colne, Burnley and Burscough, had also issued a plea from Mr Ritchie’s family for him to return home safely.
