A 91-YEAR-OLD woman who went missing from her home in Dorset has been found safe and well.

Police appealed for information after Dorothy Large, who is known as Dot, disappeared from her home in Panorama Road, Poole at around 1.40pm today.

Her family were concerned that Dorothy could come to some harm.

She only recently moved to Poole and previously lived in Wimborne.

At around 8.38pm however, a spokeswoman for Dorset Police confirmed she had been found.

She said: "Dorothy Large has been found safe and well not far from her home."
