Fear and doubt turned to joy, as João Francisco Martins Vieira, better known as Severino, 68, who disappeared from A & E yesterday, has been reunited with his family.
Severino family took to social media to thank everyone who was involved in the search. “I’m glad there are stories with happy endings. My old man has already appeared. I’m with him and we’re going home now,” wrote Severino’s daughter, who added that her father was “a little confused and couldn’t remember where he lived. When he saw me he recognised and called out to me and was in tears when he hugged me.”
The missing man was found by a PSP officer this morning while on patrol, who spotted Severino on Avenida do Mar, near the CR7 hotel.
