The family of Clarke Carlisle have appealed for help in finding the former Premier League footballer after he went missing earlier today.

Carlisle was last seen in Manchester city centre at around 6am this morning.

Family say they are concerned for his welfare and are appealing for anyone who sees him to get in touch.

Wife Carrie tweeted: "#Missing Clarke's last known whereabouts was Manchester City Centre at 6am. If you see him please get in touch."

Carlisle has battled depression for more than five years and collided with a lorry in 2014, spending six weeks in a psychiatric unit afterwards.

The former Burnley defender and PFA chairman launched a mental health charity in 2015, the Clarke Carlisle Foundation for Dual Diagnosis, and is due to speak at a mental health awareness evening at Solihull Motors next week.
