A MISSING woman has been found following a helicopter search in Starbeck.

Police in Harrogate were called just after 8pm on Wednesday night after a woman, aged in her 40s, failed to return home from a walk.

Police helicopters searched through the night and into Thursday morning, concentrating much of their attention on the Starbeck area and between Harrogate and Knaresborough.

“Thankfully the woman was found on Thursday morning by a member of the public in the Harrogate area,” a police spokesman said. “She was taken to hospital for a check-up. Police are satisfied that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.”
