A YOUNG man missing since last Saturday has been located.

Michael Bateman, 28, was last seen on Saturday at 11pm in the cottage in the village of Medstead, near Alton, where he lives with his parents.

Concerns had grown for his welfare because Michael had taken no wallet or mobile phone when he left his home in the High Street.

Yesterday his mother Lorna said that he had turned up and they were helping him regain his health.
