The family of ex-footballer Clarke Carlisle have not been able to contact him and have appealed for information on his whereabouts after being unable to contact him.
According to Lancashire Police, the ex-footballer was last seen by a family member on the Flag Market area of Preston at around 2.30pm this Thursday, although he may have travelled to Manchester.
At that time, the 37-year-old was wearing a black zip up jacket, a black t-shirt, blue jeans and Nike trainers and is described as afro-caribbean. He is six feet four inchs tall, slim build, with tattoos on his arms.
Steve Holgate, the detective Chief Inspector 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.”
Ex-QPR and Bradford defender Carlisle is a former chairman of the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA). Carlisle, who has spoken about his history of mental health issues, launched the Clarke Carlisle Foundation for Dual Diagnosis in 2015.
The mental health charity was set up to help people suffering from a co-existing (co-occurring) substance misuse and mental health disorder. In 2009, he helped Burnley gain promotion to the Premier League and also played for Leeds United and Watford among others during a 16-year professional career.
