There seems to be a new pattern of news story from the NE/Cleveland Police - report people missing and they turn up hours later. Could the editorial team perhaps wait until such 'disappearances' become newsworthy? - perhaps 2 days or upon the discovery of a body or a severed head.

No, I just believe that a newspaper should be a paper of 'news' not a paper that is used by Cleveland Police to raise unneccessary alarm. If such sensationalism is not stopped (and of course one has to be missing 24 hours to be a missing person) then it won;t be long before the Police press release 'Mrs. Miggins was late for her cup of tea at a neighbour's house' and the NE repsonds by putting such a newsworthy item on the front page only to discover that the said Mrs. Miggins had gone to the corner shop to buy a packet of digestives.
