A MAN missing from home for two weeks was last night found safe and well.
Ken Howarth (pictured), of Crosland Moor, was spotted by his 14-year-old son Alex at Honley Railway Station.
Alex, who catches a train home from Honley High School, tried to speak to his dad, who ran off.
Alex gave chase but Ken, 45, disappeared.
Police were called and the force helicopter was sent out.
Officers found Ken in fields nearby.
Ken, a maintenance worker who also has a flat in Halifax, was taken to a local police station where he was given food and drink.
His partner Sharon Stead thanked the police for all they had done.
Sharon and Alex appealed in yesterday’s Examiner for Ken to return before Alex’s 15th birthday next week.
Family friend Trish Cooper said: “Alex has been ever so brave and was understandably upset.
“All that matters is that Ken is safe and well.
“We just want to thank the police. They have been brilliant.”
Ken, who has had mental health problems in the past, went missing after leaving home on December 27.
He said he was off to Halifax to pay his rent.
Police confirmed that Ken was found just after 4pm in Honley.
A spokesman added: “He is now being looked after by officers and police wish to thank members of the media and public for their assistance in helping to find him.”
It is believed Ken may have been suffering from the effects of the cold.
