Dunoon woman Hannah Scofield, who was reported missing with warrant absconder Leon King on Friday, was found by police last night.

The 23-year-old mother is reported to be safe and well.

Mr King is wanted by police on two outstanding warrants, including one for an alleged assault at Goonellabah the day he went missing.

Anyone who knows of his whereabouts is advised not to approach him but to call local police or 000 immediately.
