Fears were growing for former Burnley, Preston North End and Blackpool footballer, Clarke Carlisle, who was reported to be missing in Manchester.

His worried wife, Carrie Carlisle‏, took to Twitter this morning after the footballer was last seen on Flag Market at around 2-30pm in Preston yesterday.

Family members, however, believed he had travelled to Manchester since that sighting.

His wife said: “Missing: Clarke’s last known whereabouts was Manchester City Centre at 6am. If you see him please get in touch.”

The former PFA Chairman has a history of mental illness and has talked openly about his issues. He made 85 appearances for Blackpool, 128 for Burnley and 20 for Preston.
