A 28-year-old man who police described as a "potential risk to the public" has been found, after absconding from a psychiatric hospital.
Keiron Miller went missing from Llanarth Court Psychiatric Hospital in Monmouthshire on Friday morning.
Police have confirmed he was found on Sunday afternoon by police in Abergavenny and has been returned to his hospital ward.
Bronze Age tools and weapons found in a field in Monmouthshire have been declared treasure.
Two hoards of axe and spear heads were found 135 metres apart in a field in Llantilio Croessenny, by a group using metal detectors. Experts believe the items date back to around 1,000-800 BC.
The discoveries were first reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme Cymru in January before museum archaeologists from the National Museum Wales were called in.
These hoards contain a real variety of tools and weapons used towards the end of the Bronze Age in this region. Many whole and still usable bronze objects were carefully buried in the ground at this particular time and archaeologists now think that these may have been gifts to the gods and ancestors, buried during ritual ceremonies. It is curious that this place in the landscape was chosen for the burial of two hoards of the same date and very close to each other.
Abergavenny Museum said it hoped to buy the items with money from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
