Leicestershire Police confirmed the good news in a newly-issued statement which was issued on social media this evening (Wednesday, 24 August).

As we reported two days ago, Leicestershire Police launched an appeal to find then-missing 62-year-old man Richard Ellis-Robinson, as officers and his family members were ‘very concerned’ for his safety, as he suffers with short-term memory loss.

At the time of his disappearance, it was believed that he could be wandering around either Hinckley or Nuneaton on foot, as he has links to both of the towns.

He was reported as ‘missing’ after he failed to return back to his home in Earl Shilton on Monday, 22 August, where he was last seen close to the George Eliot Hospital.

Thankfully, it was revealed in a statement issued by the force that he was located in nearby Nuneaton yesterday (Tuesday, 23 August).

The police statement simply reads: “An Earl Shilton man reported missing on Monday (22 August) has been located. Richard Ellis-Robinson, 62, was found safe and well in Nuneaton last night (Tuesday). Thank you to everyone who shared our appeal.”
