A fresh appeal is being made to find a man who has been missing for eight years, on his 25th birthday.

Jordan Ratcliffe, from Moston, was 16 when he was dropped off in Tib Street in Manchester's Northern Quarter on 31 August 2008.

A £20,00 reward for information leading to his whereabouts still stands, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

There have been reports of sightings in Portsmouth in 2014 but police said there have been no further sightings.

'Renewed searches'

Police described Mr Ratcliffe as white, 5ft 5in (1.65m) tall, of medium build, with ginger hair and brown eyes.

A computer-generated image of what he may look like now was produced last year.

Det Con Christopher Doggart of GMP said "efforts are still very much being made to find him".

He said officers were revisiting lines of inquiry and making renewed searches of the Greater Manchester area but information from the public could still prove crucial.

He said: "The £20,000 reward 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 said there is a dedicated, 24-hour line to receive calls relating to his disappearance and urged anyone with information to contact GMP.
