A woman who went missing after posting on Facebook that her date had failed to show and she was having a drink with another man has been found safe and well.

Sarah Brown, 23, is believed to have been at the Jolly Sailor pub on Poole Quay in Dorset at 9.30pm on Thursday.

Miss Brown posted on Facebook that her date had not turned up and she was having a drink with a man called Steve instead.

Police appealed for information on Miss Brown's whereabouts yesterday, after she failed to attend work on Friday and Saturday.

Today, Dorset Police announced that Miss Brown had been found "safe and well".

A force spokesman added: "Dorset Police would like to thank the public and the media for their help."
