A man and his young daughter have been found "safe and well" tonight, after going missing three days ago in Worcester.
Both Ewan and Tanith Powell were discovered in the Didcot area after disappearing on Saturday morning, when Mr Powell collected her from her mother's home in Worcester for a prearranged visit, Thames Valley Police said.
Chief Inspector Elaine Axe said: "Missing man Ewan Powell, aged 42, of Benson, Oxfordshire, and his daughter Tanith Powell, aged three, from Worcestershire, have both been found safe and well today in the Didcot area.
"Thames Valley Police would like to thank the public and the media for their assistance locating them."
The home of a man who went missing along with his three-year-old daughter three days ago, had "been recently vacated", according to police.
Ewan and Tanith Powell were last seen on Saturday morning in Worcester, when Mr Powell collected the youngster from her mother's home for a pre-arranged visit, Thames Valley Police said.
A force spokeswoman said there had been one unconfirmed sighting of the 42-year-old and his daughter in Benson and several other areas in Oxfordshire, which officers were investigating.
Mr Powell is also believed to have links to Scotland, she said.
Chief Inspector Elaine Axe said: "I'm continuing to appeal for anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, to contact police.
"There is no evidence to suggest they have come to any harm.
"Although this was a pre-arranged visit, we would like to see Mr Powell and his daughter to ensure they are safe."
The police have issued information on a father and daughter who went missing over the weekend in Worcester.
Ewan is white, 5ft 10ins, with short brown hair, and is of medium build. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black jumper and brown shoes.
Tanith is white, 3ft 3ins, of slim build, with brown hair. She was last seen wearing a pink coat with flowers on, a grey long sleeve top, dark-coloured leggings and Spiderman trainers.
Chief Inspector Elaine Axe, of Thames Valley Police, said: "I am appealing for anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Mr Powell and his daughter to contact police."
Police are today continuing the hunt for a father who went missing with his young daughter over the weekend.
Ewan Powell and his daughter and Tanith have not been seen since Saturday, though somebody reported speaking to Mr Powell on Monday.
Tanith, aged three, was with 42-year-old Mr Powell at her home in Worcester when they went missing.
Investigating officers say the disappearance is "out of character" for Mr Powell.
