Stephen Colin Beadleson was reported missing from his home address in the Beverley High Road area of Hull after being last seen by his mother at this address at approximately on the morning of Monday 22nd September 2014.

Stephen is described as a white, 6ft tall with a medium build and dark coloured greying hair.

It is not known at this time what clothing Stephen was wearing when he left his home address.

He has been reported missing on one previous occasion several years ago. On that occasion he spent time along the east coast in the Humberside and North Yorkshire area.

There are concerns for Stephen's welfare due to the time he has been missing without having any contact with his family.

Stephen is urged to call the police or his family to confirm he is ok and any contact will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.

The Football Association has confirmed that Hull City will appeal the FA Council's decision to reject an application to change the Premier League club's name.

In a statement, the FA revealed that Hull City have "chosen to commence an arbitration under Rule K of the Rules and Regulations of The Football Association to challenge the decision of The FA Council."

Although FA rules state that any such challenges must remain confidential, they have decided to confirm the arbitration "in the interests of the supporters" and promised to make a further announcement once a decision has been reached.

In April 2014, the FA Council rejected an application from Hull City owner Assem Allam to change the club's name to Hull Tigers.
