He was walking in the direction of St Annes Street.


A widely-shared Facebook post from Charley’s family states: “He was last seen at around 2am in Manchester city centre on Saturday morning.

“He was very drunk and ran off having fallen over twice and has not been heard from since.

“We are very worried as he had dropped his phone (which we have) so is not contactable. It was a very cold night and he only had a waist length red jacket on which wouldn’t have been very warm.
