Last weekend, voluntary underwater team Beneath the Surface searched the River Lune as part of the ongoing hunt.

Daniel, who is from Coventry but has lived in Preston for eight years, hasn't been seen since he left City View, Sidings Close.

A possible later sighting is from the Millennium Bridge area, close to the exit from Lune Street, on the same evening.

Daniel, who has a young son, was last seen wearing a blue Hugo Boss tracksuit and black trainers.

He is 6ft 2ins tall, of slim build with brown hair.

He has a tattoo on the right side of his neck reading 'Shannon' and also has a 'pixie ear' on his right side.

If you can help, contact 101, quoting log 0250 of December 10 2022.
