Bonchester Bridge woman found safe and well

An elderly Borders woman reported missing at the weekend has been found safe and well.

Sarah Philips, 79, of Bonchester Bridge, was reported missing early on Saturday but turned up later the same day.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “Officers wish to thank the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team, the Borders Search and Rescue Unit and the coastguard air support, as well as the media and public, for their assistance in tracing Sarah.

The pensioner, said to be fit for her age, was feared to have got lost after going out for a walk in nearby woodland.
