AMANDA Hull, who went missing after setting off for a horse ride, has been found safe today after a three-day search.
The 38-year-old hadn’t come home after her dad dropped her off at her horse’s field in Worcestershire on Saturday.
She was seen collecting the animal from the field in Ombersley, and leading him towards a nearby stables, an activity she does six days a week.
But she didn’t reach the stables – with her horse found back in the field with her bag, which had her phone, money and lunch in.
Friends and family pulled together to launch search parties to try and find Amanda, with cops issuing an appeal – before today confirming she has been found safe.
West Mercia Police said in a statemnt: “We are happy to confirm that Amanda Hull has been found safe and well and we and her family have been informed.
“We would like to say a huge thank you to the community of Droitwich and everyone who shared our appeal.
“There was a huge amount of support from people during this search and we are extremely grateful.”
Before she was found her frantic mum, Carol, wrote: “Come on somebody must know something. This is killing me.
“It doesn’t matter how small, if you know anything. Please ring the police. I am going out of my mind with worry.”
Postal workers and taxi drivers were given her picture and told to look out for the missing woman.
But today after news was shared she had been located, relived friends posted on the Facebook page set up to co-ordinate search efforts.
One wrote: “Amanda has been FOUND safe and well!!
“No further details at present. I just wanted to thank everyone for their help and support over the last couple of days.
“The response to our coordinated search from The Red Lion this morning has been phenomenal, we literally had queues of people out of the door.
