Minod Monger, 23, was found in Sheffield this afternoon, after being missing for almost four weeks

Officers began searching Crowden, in Derbyshire yesterday 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.
