A MAJOR search was launched after an elderly resident went missing from a Barton care home last night (Wednesday).

The alarm was raised around 9.15pm, with reports the 80-year-old man had disappeared from Engleburn in Milford Road.

The pensioner was later found, but no details about when and where were available.
