Updated : Looking for Tim Gunn

Thankfully Tim has made contact with his family, he is safe and well and the family wanted to thank everyone who provided support and encouragement over the past two weeks.

From Cornwall Community News : "The distraught family of missing Redruth man Tim Gunn can finally get a good night’s sleep after their disabled relative was found thanks to a massive web search spearheaded by the News.
Tim has been missing from the home he shares with wife Ann in Montagu Avenue, Redruth for almost a fortnight.
Ann and her daughters, Morwenna, who’s from Camborne, Naomi, who lives in Redruth and Demelza, who lives in Launceston, turned straight to the web to find him.
And thanks to a Facebook campaign and regular updates on Cornwall Community News the family finally tracked the 57 year old down.

Tim is a severe haemophiliac, and behind the satisfaction of the family’s global internet campaign attracting tens of thousands of people, lay a real concern for him. Tim has to carry medication at all times in case of the slightest injury.

He’s now let his family now he’s safe and well – and his son-in-law Brett Murphy told the News Tim’s family are gratefully calling their hunt off. Brett explained: “Tim has been found and the family are all very relieved.“I’m heading off for what will hopefully be a great nights sleep and so are all of Tim’s relatives who looked for him for the last two weeks.
The BT engineer from Camborne added: “We do want to thank the News for all you have done to help us in our search and everyone in Britain who helped via the internet.
“We’re very glad Tim is safe and well.”

Awful for families when people go missing. I haven't seen him but then I'm a long way from Redruth. Is he a family member or friend?

@Eliza Tim is a family member, and it is on behalf of his four daughters that I made this request; they really just want to knw he is safe and well.
