A 33-YEAR-OLD Flintshire man reported missing over the weekend has been found alive.
Fears were growing for the wellbeing of Stephen Roberts, from Saltney, after his car was found at the Horseshoe Pass, Llangollen on Saturday night.
A full scale search involving police, search teams and rescue dogs was launched immediately, but Mr Roberts was found ‘safe and well’ in Cheshire late last night (Monday).
A police spokeswoman said today: “North Wales Police can confirm that Stephen Roberts was found safe and well in the Cheshire area last night.”
Searches involving police officers, the Search and Rescue Dog Association (SARDA) and North East Wales Search and Rescue (NEWSAR) went on throughout Saturday night, Sunday and Monday at the popular beauty spot.
In an attempt to trace their friend, 100 people joined Facebook group ‘Help Find Steve Roberts’, and news of him turning up safe went online at midnight.
Adam Dandy wrote: “Steve has been found safe and well. Thanks for all your support!”
And Paul Roberts added: “You guys are all amazing...Please accept my humble thanks for your support over the past day...he is safe and we hope to get him back on his feet ASAP.”
The circumstances of Mr Roberts’ disappearance are not known, and police have not disclosed where he was found.
