AN 85-year-old man from Colchester who had been missing over night has been found safe and well in a field near to his home.

Police became increasingly concerned for Harold Lloyd after they discovered his glasses on the top of a six foot fence in an alleyway.

Mr Lloyd has early dementia and recently suffered a minor stroke for which he needs medication.

He left his home in the Welshwood Park area of Colchester for a walk around 6.40pm last night and had not been seen since.

A spokesman for Essex police said he was looking forward to being reunited with his wife because it is his 59th wedding anniversary.
