Missing woman found after community's tweeting
6:19pm Saturday 12th January 2013 in News
A woman with Down's Syndrome who went missing yesterday evening was found thanks to a Twitter appeal.
Michela Atkins, 26, went missing from a respite centre in Nursteed, Devizes, at about 6pm yesterday.
The police were called and a search party of friends and family was set up.
Ms Atkins was found safe and well three hours later by a jogger in Market Lavington who saw a tweet about the disappearance.
Molly Downey, 17, who was part of the search, said: "I'm really glad she was found, I don't think I'd have been able to sleep last night if she hadn't been.
"Everybody was really worried about her because she didn't have any warm clothes and it was going to rain."
