I have edited comments from a FB post just to let people know the outcome:

'Valerie has been found safe and well in the UK'.
'She made plans to return to the UK some weeks ago. She transferred her money to a UK bank and then she leaves the care home and gets on a plane without telling anyone'.

I woukld have reservations about leaving any relative of mine in that 'care' home! They obviously have very little knowledge of their guests movements and whereabouts!

Care homes are not prisons, very easy for someone to go and sit outside or walk away.

My Mother managed one in the UK so I'm aware of what the score is, however if someone is deemed vulnerable they should be monitored more closely for their own safety and well being! Since this story was in the news someone I now know worked there and knew this particular lady has told me stories about the poor attitudes, lack of staff training etc etc.

People who want to leave will always find a way to do that. It is not a prison indeed.

You don't know for sure, about this lady's situation, as none of us do, so not really a good idea to speculate.

The person who told me about the state of the place worked there but left quickly because of the lack of standards! She also knew the lady concerned.

She can't be that vulnerable if she managed to fly back to the UK on her own steam.

The main thing is, she is safe...
The rest will all come out in the wash sooner or later.

She may have had a relative or friend in the UK helping her though.

Nothing to do with the care she was receiving in Paphos, according to someone who has known her well for over two years and who was also directly involved in the search earlier this week. Even she was unaware that Valerie had returned to the UK!
