A grandfather who had been missing for five days has been found.

Brian Hicks, 83, was last seen on Sunday (5 January) going to bed but the next morning he was gone.

His son Colin says Mr Hicks would often leave his home near Coventry and go for a drive in his grey Vauxhall Viva, but had always returned safely.

His family put out a tearful appeal to help find Brian on Thursday (9 January).

Police confirmed today that the 83-year-old had been found and is now in hospital.

He had been found in his car in Cosford, Rugby at 5:15pm.
