Woman Who Vanished After Going Grocery Shopping Found Safe And Well

A woman who disappeared after going grocery shopping in Sydney's north has been found safe and well.

Lynn O’Reilly, 69, was reported missing after she failed to return to her family's home on Wednesday afternoon.

Police have now confirmed she's been reunited with her family.

Earlier, police said O'Reilly had travelled from the UK to Sydney to visit relatives, and that she has a pre-existing medical condition, which sparked concerns for her welfare.

She had left a property on Willoughby Road, Crows Nest, about 3.15pm on Wednesday to go grocery shopping at a local Coles but never returned home. Family members searched the area before notifying police.

Despite conducting an extensive search of the area, police and family were unable to locate her.

On Thursday, police thanked the community for its help finding O'Reilly.
