A fresh appeal was launched by Greater Manchester Police today to trace a Moston teenager – who disappeared four years ago.
Jordan Anthony Ratcliffe, 20, was only 16 years old when he went missing on August 31 2008.
Described as tall, white, of medium build with short ginger hair and brown eyes, Jordan vanished after his aunt dropped him off on Tibb Street in the city centre at approximately 4.45pm.
Missing Persons Investigating Officer Julie Potts said: “It has been nearly four years since Jordan was seen and his family, as well as the police, continue to be concerned for his safety."
He was last seen wearing a black and grey jacket, black Nike tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.
A recent bereavement in his family has caused police to reissue the appeal for Jordan’s whereabouts.
Greater Manchester Police are directly appealing to anyone with information to contact them.
Investigating Officer Potts continued: “I want to appeal directly to Jordan and ask him to contact either police, family or friends as four years is a long time without being in touch.
"You are not in any trouble, your family just want to know you are safe and well.”
She added that anyone who may have seen Jordan or know where he may be staying should get in touch with them.
