Good News, a lady in her 60's with onset dementia that was reported missing around 6pm tonight has been found safe and well.
A family friend spotted her walking towards Patrington and contacted the Police. Patrol Officers collected the lady and returned her home to family.

The Herbert Protocol helps families with relatives with dementia.

Do you have a friend or relative who is elderly, suffers with dementia or has other mental health issues which can leave them confused, lost or disorientated?

Nothing is more worrying or distressing than if someone you care about goes missing or doesn't return home when expected - and for people living with or caring for someone with dementia or other mental health conditions, this may be quite a common occurrence.

We do all we can to help locate missing people and get them home safely as quickly as possible – particularly when they are vulnerable.

Often missing people head for locations or try to find people who mean a lot to them, so having details of these people and places written down in case of emergency can really help us to speed up our search.

And that’s why we’ve adopted the Herbert Protocol, a national scheme which encourages carers, families, friends or neighbours, to print out and fill in this form with as much detail as possible, then keep it somewhere safe – along with a recent photo.
