THE family of a missing British woman is delighted after she was spotted in Murcia.

Nollaig O’Connor, who has not been in contact with relatives since May 2013, was seen by a tourist from her home town in Northern Ireland.

Members of the family have now flown to Murcia in an attempt to bring the 38-year-old home.

O’Connor – a devout Christian – had not been seen or heard from since going travelling last year.

The last sighting of O’Connor – who has a distinctive white cross tattoo on her forehead – was on CCTV in Cornwall.

Her family launched a Facebook and Twitter campaign to find her, after she failed to contact them over Christmas.

Social media sites have been flooded with messages of support for the family.
