A BARNSLEY man who went missing from a psychiatric hospital has been found safe and well.

Police appealed for the public’s help locating 40-year-old James Stephenson last week after he went missing from Cambian Oaks Hospital in Sheffield Road.

He told staff he intended to go shopping in either Leeds or Huddersfield, but did not return.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: "James Stephenson was found safe and well in Dewsbury on Monday morning.

"Thanks to all for sharing the appeal."
