THE HUNT for the missing legal executive Alison Routley was called off last night after she was found safe and well.

Police had feared the 34-year- old mother may have been murdered after her burnt-out car was discovered on the Quantock Hills.

Her husband, Brian, 40, raised the alarm after returning from work 11 days ago to find their home at Lydeard St Lawrence, near Taunton, Somerset, disturbed, his wife's handbag emptied and spots of blood on a wall.

Avon and Somerset police said last night that Mrs Routley had 'left of her own accord'. A statement said the incident was now closed and at the family's request no further details would be given. They would not confirm that she had been found in a hospital.

Mrs Routley was last seen on 28 September, and her car was found the next day.
