By Christian Smith

The family of former footballer Clarke Carlisle have raised concern about his welfare after they were unable to get in touch with him.

According to his wife, Carlisle, 37, was last in Manchester city centre at 06:00 BST. In a Tweet, she asked “if you see him please get in touch.”

Police say, the 37-year-old was last seen wearing a black zip up jacket, a black t-shirt, blue jeans and Nike trainers.

The former QPR and Burnley footballer who has previously spoken of his mental health issues, launched the Clarke Carlisle Foundation for Dual Diagnosis in 2015.

Det Ch Insp Steve Holgate, from Lancashire Police, said: “We are extremely concerned about Clarke and we would urge anyone who sees him or knows where he is to get in touch with us.

“We would also appeal directly to Clarke himself to contact us if he sees this appeal to let us know he is safe.”
