Greater Manchester Police has issued an urgent appeal to help find a missing Eccles man who disappeared on 11 March.

The Salford man identified only as Andrew is said to have gone missing from Barton Lane in the town of Eccles at the start of the week.

Having last been seen at home around 11pm on Monday evening, his mum reported him as missing when she realised he was nowhere to be found from 5:30am onwards the following morning.

Considered vulnerable due to needing regular medication and struggling with mobility issues, his family and GMP are now growing “increasingly concerned” for his well-being and are hoping to bring him home as soon as possible.

Have you seen Andrew?

Described as being five-foot-nine, slim build with mousey brown hair and hazel eyes, he was last seen wearing a green hoodie; a thick, green coat with black joggers and blue Skechers shoes with a white sole at the time of his disappearance.


Locals on social media are asking people all over the region to check CCTV cameras and the likes of Ring doorbells to see if they spot any signs of Andy having been through their area.

Authorities are now urging anyone with any information, no matter how minor they think it might be, as well as any potential sightings of his possible whereabouts to get in touch by calling 0161 856 5351, quoting log number 702 of March 11, 2024.


Alternatively, you can make a report via the CrimestoppersUK website or by calling 0800 085 0000.

This is the most recent confirmed sighting of Andrew.
