Missing woman returns home


A Tyers woman missing since Sunday has been found safe and well.

Twenty year-old Samantha Burns returned home to her parents and young daughter this afternoon after a two-day social media campaign and Victoria Police appeal.

Traralgon Police Station’s Constable Liam Murdock said friends made contact with Samantha and convinced her to come home.

“A big thanks to the community for all their assistance and concerns for Samantha. “It’s a great result,” Const Murdock said.
