We’ve found him. Alan was found by a member of the public wandering round Barton Turf and thought he had come from the local care home. Very wet and cold, Alan should be back with us this evening – safe and well.
A huge thank you to everybody who helped us through this day of drama. Amazing how news travels so fast now.
Equal amount of gratitude heaped on the police, fire brigade, and all search teams involved. Police dogs, helicopter and a drone were used to help find Alan. A magnificent effort by all.
Alan had gone missing after leaving the home of Patrick and Lesley Prekopp in Spratt’s Green. Alan is Lesley’s cousin and is suffering from Alzheimer’s. The family have been overwhelmed and humbled by the offers of help and are relieved that it is now over.
