Lancashire police: Clarke Carlisle has been found safe in Liverpool.— Dan Roan (@danroan) September 15, 2017
FORMER PREMIER LEAGUE footballer Clarke Carlisle has been found “safe and well” in Liverpool, Lancashire police have confirmed.
The family of Carlisle had previously expressed concern for the former footballer, as they had been unable to contact him for a considerable period.
Earlier today, his wife Carrie posted a message on Twitter today saying Carlisle had been last seen at 6am in Manchester City Centre.
Lancashire Police subsequently issued a statement saying they were “extremely concerned” about the 37-year-old former footballer, who has spoken of his mental health problems in the past and spent six weeks in a psychiatric unit in 2014, after being hit by a lorry.
Over the course of a 16-year playing career in the game, Carlisle played for a number of clubs, including Leeds, Burnley and QPR.
