A Leeton man who was reported missing has been found safe.

The man was reported missing at 9.30am on Friday, and was found on Saturday.

In other news, the long weekend was a busy time for Griffith LAC and highway patrols, who took part in ‘Operation Slow Down’ across the MIA.

Over the course of the weekend, Highway patrol conducted 1886 random breath tests with general duty officers conducting 1452.

There were 128 speeding infringement notices issued, 15 seat belt infringements issues, six positive random drug tests, and 73 other miscellaneous infringement notices issued from Friday to Monday.

Griffith Highway Patrol's Sergeant Matthew Carroll was pleased with drivers conduct over the weekend, but was disappointed with the number of speeding infringements and drunk and drug drivers.

“Overall we were happy with the behavior of motorists over the weekend, even though people were detected without seat belts and for speeding,” he said.
