A Wellington man missing for two days was this morning found safe and well.

Police yesterday issued a public appeal over 56-year-old Stephen Landrum, who went missing from his daughter's property in the capital city suburb of Northland on Friday.

Early this afternoon, police confirmed he returned to his daughters about 10.20am today.

He left that property without his cell phone and his relatives and police had serious concerns for his wellbeing because he has Parkinson's disease.


It was believed Mr Landrum intended to catch a bus to Levin to stay with family members, however he hadn't arrived yesterday.

Mr Landrum was known to walk a lot and, when he was missing, his family believed he was still within the Wellington area.

A police spokeswoman said this afternoon it was too early to say where he had been for the past two days.
