An appeal for information has been launched to find a firefighter who has been missing since the early hours of Monday.

Daniel Lee was last seen in Manchester City Centre just after 1am.

The watch manager based at Agecroft Fire Station, who lives in Salford, was seen walking past Saint Mary's Parsonage near to Crazy Pedro's.

He is described as 6ft 3ins with a broad build and short grey hair around the sides.

Daniel, aged 41, was last seen wearing white Adidas trainers, light blue jeans, a navy t-shirt and a distinctive Fila jacket, which has bright blue patches on the front with a white stripe around the middle and black at the bottom.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: "Officers are concerned about Daniel and want to ensure  he is safe and well.

"Anyone with information about Mr Lee's whereabouts should contact police on 0161 856 5277 or 101."

Carl Haslam, Station Commander for Farnworth Fire Station, said: "One of our watch managers has gone missing."
