n 80-year-old hiker who went missing in the Yorkshire Dales for three days was reunited with his family at a police press conference called to publicise his disappearance.  

Harry Harvey was on a group-organised walk in Upper Swaledale in North Yorkshire on Saturday when he disappeared.

Police officers, mountain rescue volunteers and an RAF search and rescue team scoured the area but could find no sign of him. More than 100 people were involved at one point, as well as several specialist dogs.
