In much-needed good news this festival season, 31-year-old Birmingham, UK resident Cameron Crowhurst has been found healthy and safe following his disappearance after attending UK festival Boomtown Fair earlier this month.
Crowhurst reportedly left the festival a day early on Saturday, August 12 after losing his phone and was last seen boarding a train to Bournemouth around 7PM local time the following day.
Birmingham Police confirmed on social media last week that Crowhurst was found almost two weeks after his disappearance, thanks to appeals from his family and posters placed around the city of Winchester.
The announcement from police read: “We have some wonderful news to bring you. Missing Cameron has been found safe and well. We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeal. We really do appreciate it.”
One of Crowhurst’s relatives also confirmed his return, telling British broadcast outlet ITV, “Cameron has been found safe. Thank you everyone who has helped in the search for Cameron.”
“I had a random Facebook message request from someone saying ‘call me I’m with Cam,’” they continued. “I didn’t believe it until I heard his voice. But he is safe and well. He has been through a massive ordeal, and we are just so happy that he is safe.”
