Good news as former player Clarke Carlisle found



The former footballer Clarke Carlisle, who was reported missing, has been found safe and well in Liverpool, police said.

His wife Carrie earlier tweeted that his family was concerned after being unable to contact him.

He had last been seen in Manchester city centre at 06:00 BST, she said.

Carlisle, 37, who has previously spoken of his mental health issues, spent six weeks in a psychiatric unit after he was hit by a lorry in 2014.

Lancashire Police said: "Great news. Former footballer Clarke Carlisle, 37, who went missing has been found safe and well in Liverpool this evening.

"Many thanks to everyone who helped with our appeal to find him."

The 37-year-old, who remarried earlier this year, played for teams including Burnley, Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United and was also chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association.

His wife, who is six months pregnant, also tweeted a message saying her husband had been found thanks to people who had "kindly looked for him" by sharing the news that he was lost.
