He is described as white, approximately 5ft 11in tall and of stocky build with short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a grey hooded top with a blue top underneath, jeans and grey addidas trainers.

It is believed that he may have headed to or be in the area of Blakeley Woods near Heaton Park. He is likely to have travelled there on foot.

Colin’s family are growing increasingly worried for his welfare.
