A MAN went missing from his home in Brixham and sparked a major search of the coast.
Police, HM Coastguard, and the RNLI lifeboat were all involved in the search for 73-year-old Owen Honeywill.
Mr Honeywill had last been seen leaving his home address in Lakes Road, Brixham, at 4pm on Tuesday, September 17.
Police issued an appeal after growing concerned about his welfare.
At 4am on Wednesday HM Coastguard joined police in a search of the coastal path from Churston down to the Brixham Battery.
The RNLI lifeboat, the RAF helicopter from RMB Chivenor and the Dartmoor Search and Rescue team were all involved in the early morning search.
But the missing pensioner was found safe and well at 8.30am at a house in South Brent.
