Missing man found
THE MASSIVE search for a missing East Devon hotel worker was called off yesterday after he turned up at his mother’s home in Swindon.
Jonathan Dixon, 37, a barman at the Dolphin, in Beer, failed to report for work on Sunday morning – sparking a huge hunt across the area.
Police, coastguards, lifeboat crews and a search and rescue helicopter from Portland were involved in the operation.
Mr Dixon had been described as a ”high risk” missing person and police put out an area- wide appeal for information.
