Man reported missing from Melbourne is found safe and well

A man who had been missing from his home in Melbourne since Saturday has been found.

John Davidson was reported missing by neighbours who had grown concerned for his welfare after last seeing him outside his address in Peniston Rise at noon on Saturday, September 13.

The 55-year-old was found on foot in Shepshed, near Loughborough, this afternoon and has now returned home safe and well.

The police helicopter was involved in the search along with officers on the ground and the appeal for information resulted in numerous calls from members of the public.

PC Matthew Haslam, who was involved in the search, said: “The response we had from people was fantastic and I would like to thank everyone who called us with information or to report possible sightings.

“I’d also like to thank the media and people who shared information on sites such as Facebook and Twitter, which helped spread the appeal far and wide.”
