A MISSING man from Bournemouth has been found safe, police have confirmed.

Mark Ford was reported as missing after he was last seen at around 9am on Monday 9 September 2019 when he left his home in Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth.

Police have now said that the 46-year-old has been found safe in the Bournemouth area following searches.

During the appeal, Chief Inspector Steve May, of Dorset Police, said: “We are becoming increasingly concerned for Mark’s welfare as we believe that he did not take vital medication with him, which he requires regularly.

“We need to locate him urgently to ensure he is well and has not come to any harm.

“I am hoping that someone might have seen him since his Monday morning and can therefore help us trying to find him.

“If Mark himself sees this appeal, please get in touch with us to let us know you are well.”
