A MISSING man has been found after his mother raised alarm last night.

Evan was last seen on CCTV driving his car through the area of Porton Down shortly after 1pm yesterday.

His mother Philippa Thomas put out an appeal for the help of the public but updated helpers shortly after midnight to confirm he had been found.

Posting to Facebook, at 12.15am this morning Philippa wrote: "I am beyond relieved to let everyone know that Evan was found in Sutton Scotney tonight by a friend.

"Thanks to all you wonderful people who have sent us messages of support, shared the hell out of my post and the friends who went out looking.

"It was this shared post that alerted them to where he might be. He is not feeling great as you can imagine, but recovery can begin."
