Capel St Mary: Missing woman found

POLICE have confirmed that a woman who was reported missing yesterday lunchtime has been found safe and well.

Police had issued an urgent appeal as they tried to trace Brenda Peck, who had been missing from Capel St Mary.

A police spokesman said: “I can confirm Brenda Peck has now been found. She was discovered alive, but very cold, in some undergrowth on the disused railway line north of Capel by two police officers who were part of the search for her. She is now being taken to hospital for checks.

“Police would like to thank all those involved with the search - particularly Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR) who assisted last night and today in freezing conditions.”

She explained that officers had been able to narrow the search after a member of the public called in with information at about noon today, reporting a possible sighting of her heading towards the old railway track yesterday afternoon.
