POLICE have found a missing Winchester man who went missing from the city hospital.

They had appealed for the public's help to trace Ralph Carine, 86, yesterday evening.

Ralph went missing from the Royal Hampshire County Hospital on Romsey Road, Winchester at 2.30pm.

Later, just after 4pm, it was believed he was seen walking in the Stockbridge area.

Officers carried out a number of enquiries to locate him and were growing increasingly concerned for this welfare.

But police tweeted last night to say that Ralph had been found.
