A walker who has been missing for almost three days in the Yorkshire Dales has been found safe and well.

Harry Harvey, 80, has been reunited with his family at the Tan Hill Inn.

He was reported missing on Sunday after heading out for an organised walk with a group in Swaledale.

Police said Mr Harvey was spotted by a wildlife photographer who had seen appeals for information on the missing Tynemouth man and noticed him waving at her from the Keld direction.

Inspector Mark Gee of North Yorkshire Police said: “This is fantastic news that Harry has been found safe and well.

“I want to thank all the search volunteers for their time, as well as gamekeepers, estate owners, farmers and local residents for their help and understanding.

“Thanks also to the Tan Hill, who looked after the volunteers and Mr Harvey’s family.”

A huge search operation involving more than 100 mountain rescue volunteers, seven search dogs and handlers and a police helicopter took place on the hills around Gunnerside and the Tan Hill Inn after Mr Harvey’s disappearance was reported.
