Missing Milton Keynes security guard has been found safe - but not well
Missing MK security guard and loving dad Terry Gullen has been located, much to the relief of his family.
Terry, 53, had not been seen since Tuesday evening when he left his Lakes Estate home to pop out to the Co-op for a packet of cigarettes.
His partner Corrine Morgan, who is mum to their seven-year-old autistic son, said Terry would never disappear of his own free will.
She feared he had been taken by force and was being held captive.
The Citizen put out a plea for information while Corrine continued her own searches of the area.
"We formed a search party of neighbours and we were walking around the Denbigh area, about 10 or 15 minutes' walk away from home, when we suddenly spotted the car hidden behind some bushes," she said.
"I was terrified when I went up to it, but there, to my relief, was Terry. He was far from well though. He was just staring straight through us.
"It looks as though he had been there in his car the whole time. He was not in a good way."
Corrine believes Terry has suffered a mental breakdown due to a neighbourhood dispute and problems at work. It is now hoped mental health services will give him the help he needs.
Corrine has thanked everyone who has helped by searching for him over the past couple of days.
