Republic of Ireland striker Clare Shine has been found following a missing person appeal.
An alert was sent out over the weekend for the 25-year-old whose whereabouts had become unknown.
Last seen in Roslin, Midlothian in Scotland, her club Glasgow City launched an appeal to the public for their help in locating Clare.
Following her retrieval, the club confirmed that she was in safe hands and receiving assistance.
“We have reassuring information about Clare’s whereabouts and she has assistance,” Glasgow City said in an update on Sunday evening.
“Thank you to everyone who helped. You made such a difference. We will say more when we can.”
The Cork native – who is in her second stint at Glasgow, having previously lined out for Cork City and Raheny – took to Twitter from her hospital bed after news broke of her return to say: "I'm struggling and that's ok. I'll be back."
Thank you everyone, I’m struggling and that’s okay. I’ll be back.— Clare Shine (@ClareShine01) June 21, 2020
