STEPHEN Moss, the 46-year-old Ipswich man who had been missing for a month has been in touch with his family to say he is alive and well.

His sister, Anita Short from the Wirral in Merseyside, had asked The Evening Star to help publicise her brother's disappearance in the hope someone would let them know where he was.

But she believes Mr Moss had either seen the appeal in the Star or someone had told him his family was worried and he got in touch at the weekend.

Suffolk police had been looking for Mr Moss after they were contacted by St Clement's Hospital in Ipswich where he was a voluntary patient.
