An 11-hour police search ended in a missing man being found safe in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, March 29).

Police were called just before 6.20pm yesterday (Monday, March 28) to reports of concerns for the welfare of a man.

A helicopter and dog units searched Tring and the surrounding villages while officers on the ground visited pubs in the area to make landlords aware of who they were looking for.

He was found safe just before 5am this morning and has been taken to hospital for further treatment.
