Police have found a body in their search for football agent Dominic Yarwood.
The 32-year-old, who represents a host of Football League players, was last seen at around 7:15pm on Wednesday night in Woodland Grange, Worsley.
A variety of footballers and celebrated shared appeals to find Yarwood via social media, such as Manchester City and England defender Kyle Walker.
Police then issued a statement on Thursday confirming they had found a body, having informed his family.
Officers say there are no suspicious circumstances and formal identification has not yet taken place.
“Formal identification hasn’t taken place but we’ve informed Dominic’s family as we believe it to be him.
“There’s no suspicious circumstance and we’re supporting his family at this awful time.”
Yarwood, who works for Elite Management, posted a blank black screen to his Instagram story on Wednesday.
The company tweeted following the news: “Dom, you’ll never know how much you’re going to be missed.
“A great friend, agent, and team member. You’ve helped Elite get to where it is today and it will never be the same without you around.
“Sending all our love and support to your family and friends.”
City and England’s Walker wrote on an Instagram story: “MISSING. If anyone knows or has seen Dom Yarwood in Manchester contact 999 urgently.”
Meanwhile, Cardiff City and Wales striker Kieffer Moore, and television personality Ross Worswick, who founded The Couture Club and appeared on Ex on the Beach, also shared appeals.
England youngster Conor Gallagher, on loan from Chelsea at Crystal Palace, is represented by Elite alongside Aston Villa prodigy Louie Barry, and West Bromwich Albion duo Jake Livermore and Conor Townsend.
Yarwood’s long list of clients includes ex- Northern Ireland international Kyle Vassell as well as Blackpool players Marvin Ekpiteta and Keshi Anderson, plus various other Football League players.
