A MISSING man who had not been seen for nearly a week has now been found following a public appeal.

Daniel Oldfield, 44, was reported missing from Colchester on July 29, prompting concern for his welfare.

Just shy of seven days later, however, Essex Police have now confirmed Mr Oldfield has been found.

A spokesman for the force said:"Good news! Daniel Oldfield, missing from Colchester, has now been found. Thank you for sharing our appeal."
