A MISSING dad-of-seven has been found safe and well.
Stephen Joyce, from Springwell Estate, Sunderland, was discovered in Middlesbrough.
The 46-year-old had last been seen on June 23 at Park Lane, where CCTV showed him getting out of a taxi at the bus station.
On Friday, Stephen’s family received a parcel from him containing personal possessions, including his wallet. His family had made a desperate appeal for him to get in touch.
A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “At 7.30pm on Saturday June 30, missing Sunderland man Stephen Joyce was found safe and well in the Marton West Beck area of Middlesbrough.
“The media and public are thanked for their assistance.”
