British backpacker missing in outback found safe


An 18-year-old British backpacker who went missing in the Australian outback after going out for a run has been found safe and well.

Sam Woodhead, from Richmond, London, was reported missing after he failed to return to a cattle station in central Queensland on Tuesday afternoon.

The BBC's Nick Bryant says Mr Woodhead was a little sunburned when he was found but was hydrated and otherwise well, and was being taken to a hospital in a nearby town.
