She was last seen leaving her home in the Cowley area of Oxford at around 10pm, prompting an appeal to find her which was widely shared on social media.
But Thames Valley Police, which was leading the investigation, confirmed she had been found yesterday evening.
A statement on the force’s official Twitter account reads: “We can confirm that Esther Beadle who was reported missing from Oxford has been found safe. Thank you everyone for your concern.”
Originally from Newcastle, Esther trained as a journalist with the Press Association course in the city in 2012.
In June of that year, she took up her first reporting role with the Evening Express, in Aberdeen.
She took up her current role with the Mail in April 2014.
