Melanie Harvey is ‘safe and well’, say police, who had been searching for the 19-year-old since Friday (July 1).
Her frantic family described her disappearance as “extremely out of character” and feared for her welfare after she failed to return home to Preston at the weekend.
But officers searching for Melanie confirmed she was found safe in Blackpool this afternoon (Monday, July 4). It follows a missing persons appeal which was circulated on Sunday (July 3).
