A WOMAN who vanished six days ago has been found safe and well after a frantic appeal by her family.
Shannon Gould, 26, from Paignton, Devon, was last seen on Wednesday after she went into Torquay to do some shopping.
The artist – originally from Preston – is regularly known to visit the seafront in her hometown and was described by cops as a “medium-risk missing person”.
Her family confirmed today she had been found.
It comes after they issued plea for information following her “out-of-character” disappearance.
Brother Joe Andrews said previously: “When we arrived at her house when we hadn’t heard from her, all her make-up was out and so was her arts stuff.
“She is an artist so she likes to draw and if she was going somewhere she would have taken it.
“We have been searching around beaches in Paignton and we are going back there tonight and have lots of pictures of her to put up.
“She is a young attractive girl so anything could have happened. Shannon is free spirited, outgoing and bubbly. She is always singing and humming.
“On the day she went missing there was a Snapchat of her on the beach earlier that day in Torquay.”
