A MISSING woman who police feared may be sleeping outdoors has been found safe and well.

Deborah Christie was last seen in Ayr on September 11 and concern was growing over the 55-year-old's whereabouts, particularly with changes in the weather.

She was last seen leaving her home in Victoria Crescent at around 4pm on Tuesday afternoon. She was reported missing to police on Thursday, September 13.

Cops, however, confirmed on Sunday that she was traced safe and well.
