Found: Ashton boy Braydon Fairhurst, 10, who went missing playing in snow

A boy of 10 who went missing while out throwing snowballs in Tameside last night has been found safe and well.

Braydon Fairhurst had been out playing in the snow with his friends on Minto Street in Ashton-under-lyne when he disappeared at around 7pm.

A massive police hunt had been launched for the youngster as they appealed to the public to check their gardens and outbuildings for him.

Detective Inspector Charlotte Cadden had described how his family were ‘extremely concerned for him’, as officers began searching extensively for him.

Greater Manchester Police have now said he has been found ‘safe and well’.
