Police continue their search for missing man last seen more than eight years ago

Police are continuing to search for Jordan Anthony Ratcliffe, who was last seen more than eight years ago.


Jordan, who was 16-years-old when he was reported missing, will be turning 25 today.

Officers have stressed that enquiries continue to be made, and that the £20,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts still stands.

Jordan is originally from the Moston area and was last seen on 31 August 2008, after he was dropped off by his aunt at around 4.45pm on Tibb Street in Manchester.

He is described as white, of medium build, tall with short ginger hair and brown eyes.

He was wearing a black and grey jacket, black Nike tracksuit bottoms and black trainers when first reported missing.

In 2014, officers received intelligence that Jordan may have been seen in the Portsmouth area, although there have been no further sightings since.

Detective Constable Christopher Doggart said: “It is now more than eight years since Jordan’s disappearance, but efforts are still very much being made to find him.

“Officers are revisiting lines of inquiry and making renewed searches of the GMP area, but information from the public could still prove crucial in this investigation.

“The £20,000 reward that we offered for information leading to Jordan’s whereabouts still stands and I would urge people to study the images that we previously released showing Jordan as he is now more likely to look.

“He was only 16 when he first went missing, but today, on his 25th birthday, he is likely to be significantly different in appearance."
