Police in Worcestershire say a woman who went missing at the weekend has been found 'safe and well.'

38-year-old Amanda Hull went missing near her stables in the village of Ombersley, just north of Worcester.

A community Facebook group to find her gained 8,000 members, and Amanda's mum Carol Hull had been posting desperate pleas: "This is everyone's worst nightmare. I just want her home safe."

A rucksack containing Amanda's purse, phone and hoodie were found in her field on Haye Lane, but she was nowhere to be seen.

After three days of searching, West Mercia Police were happy to give the following update:

Amanda was out on Saturday morning to collect her horse, something her family say she does six days a week.

However, Amanda never made it back to the stables and until Monday (24 May) had not been seen since. Her horse was found back in the field with its rug on, and the gate closed and locked.

In a plea to her daughter, Carol Hull also said: "The pain of not knowing where you are is killing me and your Dad, please come home.

"You're not in trouble, we can sort anything out, just remember we love you lots."

Since Amanda was found, a post in the Facebook group says:

"No further details at present. I just wanted to thank everyone for their help and support over the last couple of days.

"The response to our coordinated search from The Red Lion this morning has been phenomenal, we literally had queues of people out of the door.

"Amanda’s family will be forever grateful for everyone’s efforts.

"The news we were all waiting for. AMAZING!!"
