Missing pensioner found after police appeal
A Lamlash pensioner who was reported missing on Tuesday August 23 has been found safe and well.
Patricia Sloan, 83, who was last seen around 4pm in Murray Crescent, Lamlash failed to return home and Ayrshire Police issued an appeal on social media in an effort to trace her. The appeal for any information on her whereabouts was widely shared by local groups and Facebook with some people even offering to conduct a search for the missing pensioner.
Shortly before going to print, Ayrshire Police Division issued a statement saying, ‘ Following our earlier appeal we can now confirm that Patricia Sloan (83) of Lamlash has been traced safe and well. We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeals on social media.’
