His family released a picture of Minod recovering in hospital and have thanked everyone for sharing the appeal and joining in the search efforts.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “We’d like to thank everyone who has shared our appeals over the last few weeks and supported our search to Find Minod. Thank you.”

Officers began searching Crowden in Derbyshire after receiving a report from a member of the public who said they saw him walking into traffic there.

Police described Minod as ‘vulnerable’ due to his reliance on family members, and the fact he is not used to being in busy places with people he does not know.

Members of the public were asked to check their sheds and outbuildings in the search to find him.
