Alan Cowburn, 49, was last known to be at his home in Urmston at 2.55am this morning.

Update: Alan Cowburn, 49, who was reported missing yesterday, Saturday 15 July 2017, has been found safe and well.

He is white, around 5ft 9ins tall, of a heavy build with untidy grey hair and it is unknown what he is wearing.


Detective Constable Claire Phythian of GMP’s Trafford Borough, said:



“It’s been an extremely long time since Alan’s family have heard from him, which is out of the ordinary.

“They are understandably worried about his well-being and just want him to return home safely.

“Please familiarise yourself with his description and his photograph and call us immediately if you see him.

“It’s likely he’ll be using public transport and he likes to go walking in the Peak District and in Cumbria and his sister lives in Cambridgeshire so please keep an eye out for him if you’re in those areas too.”  



Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting MP/17/0108217 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
