A Herne Bay teaching assistant missing for two days returned home this morning - but her daughter says she doesn't know why she left.

Angela Gullett was reported missing after leaving her home in Pettman Close, Herne Bay, on Monday.

She was last seen boarding a train to London at 11.30am.

Her disappearance - described as completely out-of-character - sparked a huge appeal for her safe return on Facebook and Twitter.

The appeal was spearheaded by her 19-year-old daughter Amy, who spread images of her mum on the internet.

And this morning police confirmed Angela, who works at Herne Bay Infant School, had contacted her family to say she was safe.

Amy, of Linksfield Road, Westgate, said: "We are over the moon and very happy that she has returned home and is safe.

"I do not know why she went. She is in bed at the moment.

"It is just good to have her back where she belongs."

Speaking after she went missing, Herne Bay Infant School head teacher Bernadette Lax said: “She has been at the school for a number of years and is a valued member of staff.

“We are all really concerned about Angela and know the police are working very hard.

“We are hoping there is a positive outcome really quickly because we all really enjoy working with her. She is a really lovely person.

“The next 48 hours are critical.”
