A walker with Alzheimer's disease has been found safe and well after a search, police have said.

Petra Maria Herkes, 64, from Welshpool in Powys, left her home early on Monday morning but has failed to return.

Dyfed-Powys Police said she is a regular walker but has been suffering from the early signs of Alzheimer's.

Search teams had been looking for Ms Herkes covering large areas of farmland and woodland in and around Welshpool.

Police had been concerned as she had not returned after a few hours as she normally would and they issued an appeal.
