As part of their renewed appeal to find Steve, police have issued an updated image of how Steven might look now, at the age of 30.

“Someone out there must have some information about Steven in relation to his disappearance, his whereabouts or his movements since 2005 - and we are urging them to come forward and speak to us.

"At a time of year when many Brits are heading abroad we are asking holidaymakers to keep their eyes peeled and to let us know of any potential sightings of Steven – or any information, which could assist in the search for him.”

David De Gea's proposed transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid collapsed as time ran out on Monday night.

The necessary paperwork was not lodged before the Spanish league deadline and United are understood to blame their Madrid counterparts.

Confirmation that two of the world's biggest clubs could not settle the deal led to much mirth on Twitter.

Here is a selection of reaction to the deal going belly up:

Spanish newspaper AS: "Now we are hearing that United did send the documents on time but in a format that couldn't be opened at the LFP. Windows 95?"

Footballer-turned-pundit Mark Bright responds to AS: "I mean, you can't make this stuff up....."

David De Gea's move to Real Madrid collapses

Manchester United insist Real Madrid are the ones to blame for a shock collapse of David de Gea's proposed move to the Bernabeu.

United and Madrid had agreed a deal worth £29million for the sale of the Spanish goalkeeper on Monday, with Keylor Navas coming to Old Trafford as part of the agreement.

But shortly after the 11pm deadline for European transfers it emerged the necessary paperwork had not been submitted in time and the deal had fallen through as a result.

United insist they uploaded the requisite documents to FIFA's Transfer Matching System before the deadline.

It is understood that United feel it was Madrid who failed to file their paperwork in time and believe they must take the blame for the deal's collapse.

Reports in Spain indicated the documents did not reach the Spanish league office until 28 minutes after the deadline. United have rejected that, claiming they have a time-stamp from FIFA as proof they submitted the documents before the deadline.
