Police in London have issued a missing persons alert for Claude Callegan, the Arsenal fan who became a viral star for his angry rants on the futility of the Arsenal football team.

Callegan, known to online fans as Claude, is often interviewed by Arsenal TV outside the Emirates, where he usually gives highly animated post-match reactions after disappointing Arsenal results.


However, today there are worries for his safety after Essex Police issued an alert looking for information about his whereabouts, as the supporter is currently missing.

A statement released by Essex Police on Thursday night read: “Claudio Callegari, 53, of Chapel End, was last seen at 11.30am today getting into his works vehicle, a black Ford Galaxy taxi, registration LM64 EKG. He is white, of large build, 5ft 10ins tall and is bald with brown eyes. He is thought to be wearing a white shirt and black trousers.

“Our officers and his family are extremely concerned for his welfare and would urge anybody who has seen him or who knows where he is to contact police on 101.

“He is an avid Arsenal football fan and has contacts in the London area. He may have been in Edmonton at around 3pm today.”

Arsenal Fan TV offered some updates online.
