Writing on groups of Italians living in London, his relieved dad said: “Hello everyone, given your collaboration, it is right that I tell you this before you know it from other sources.

“The police found Antonino last night, but due to reasons of privacy and security, they have not told us anything at the moment, only that he is fine.

“I have no words to thank you.”

The news was also confirmed by Richmond Police who wrote: “Missing 23-year-old Antonino has been found safe and well. Thanks for your shares, comments and retweets.”

Whilst no further information has been shared about the reasons for his disappearance, his family and friends are overjoyed by the news.

Speaking to The Mirror after her son went missing, his mum said: “I am worried to death. I am speaking now for my son’s sake as we need to find him, but I can’t even talk to other people about it because of how much it hurts, I feel like I’m dying.

“He used to call me even twice a day, he is really affectionate, and he would never have left his friend alone at the station with his suitcase knowing that he didn’t know where he had to go.

“I need to be strong because Antonino has to come back and we have to have a great party to celebrate his return.”
