The father of Scottish rugby star Sean Lineen has been found by police in south-west London after going missing from Heathrow Airport.
Former New Zealand rugby union player Terry Lineen, 79, had flown from Auckland to see his son but failed to catch a connecting flight to Edinburgh on Thursday.
Worried family alerted police who launched a search for Mr Lineen, said to be in a confused state after 40 hours in transit.
He was taken to hospital after being spotted by a member of the public in Twickenham.
It is understood Mr Lineen has been reunited with his son, a former Scotland international who is now the under-20s head coach for the national side.
Daughter-in-law Lynne Lineen said he was found after reports of a distressed man seen bleeding from the arm.
