There was also a possible sighting of Stuart in a tent in Linear Park, Culcheth, Warrington, over the weekend.

PC Ruth Syers, of Burnley Police, said: “We, along with Stuart’s family, are concerned for his welfare. We would urge anybody who sees Stuart or has any information about his whereabouts to contact us straight away.

"I would also appeal directly to Stuart himself to make contact if he sees this appeal.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting log 1542 of 14th October 2020. Alternatively, email [email protected]
