Former All Black Terry Lineen, who has been missing in London since yesterday, is reported to have been found.

Terry Lineen, 79, played for the All Blacks between 1957 and 1960.

He disappeared from Heathrow Airport last night when due to take a connecting flight to Edinburgh, after arriving from Auckland.

According to a Facebook post from his daughter-in-law, Lynne Lineen, the police found him in Twickenham after a call from a member of the public.

Mrs Lineen says the person reported seeing a distressed man who they thought had been in a hit and run accident and who was bleeding from his arm.

His family is on their way to see him in hospital.
