Luke Allen, who turned 25 on Sunday and Billy Applegate, also in his early 20s, had not been since around 4am on Saturday when friends spotted the pair in the Dereham Road area of Norwich.

Mr Allen’s mother put out an emotional appeal to track the 25-year-old and said she was concerned for his welfare having discovered he was suffering with poor mental health.

But police confirmed both men had been reported found around 5.30pm on Monday.

Mr Allen’s sister, Sarah Allen, said: “I’m very glad they’ve been found. They are both safe and home where they should be.”
