Maxine Pinches, aged 50 and from Wednesfield, was reported missing by her family to West Midlands Police after leaving her home on Tuesday at around 3pm.
Maxine's worried daughter Sammie took to social media to appeal for information – with one Twitter post shared more than 30,000 times.
But this afternoon Sammie, aged 20, announced that her mother had been found safe and been in contact with police. It is not known where Maxine was found.
My mom has been found and she’s safe but she doesn’t want anyone to know where she is. I still don’t know where she is. The police can’t tell us because it’s her rights to privacy. I’m just so happy she is safe— sammie (@svmmie) March 23, 2018
Sammie told the Express & Star: "I’m so grateful for everyone who has helped me and my family find my mom.
"I’m overwhelmed by how my tweet and my Facebook post reached so many people.
"It’s heart-warming knowing there are some good people out there.
"Thank you so much to everyone who has support me and my family through this."
