A 12-year-old boy was found following a massive search after he went missing from a school trip to Minsmere nature reserve today.

Large numbers of police officers were mobilised to search the nature reserve, the area surrounding it and the beach due to concerns over the boy's safety. Norfolk Police's helicopter was called in to help with the search and the Coastguard and Suffolk lowland search and rescue team were also alerted.

It is believed the boy had walked off at around 12.30 following an argument.

A Suffolk police spokesman said that the pupil, who was from a north-east Suffolk school, was found at about 4.15pm after someone reported seeing a boy matching his description near a hide on the nature reserve.
