Police are appealing for help to trace missing Harvey Collins, 22, who was reported missing from North Manchester General Hospital on April 1.

They are warning people not to approach Harvey but to call 101.

He is described as having short brown hair, is of stocky build and approximately 5ft 8/9in tall.

He is believed to be wearing a black hooded top, grey bottoms and blue trainers and was last seen heading towards Crumpsall tram stop. He is known to frequent Manchester City Centre.

His family have had no contact with him and he needs regular medication, which he has not taken with him and we are therefore concerned for his welfare.

I’d also appeal to Harvey himself to contact police to let them know that he is safe and well.

So please, if you know of Steven’s whereabouts, please call police on 101 as soon as possible.
