Police have renewed efforts to find a missing Manchester man and have created an image of how he may look today - eight years after he disappeared.

Jordan Anthony Ratcliffe, who was 16 when he was reported missing in 2008, turns 25 today.

A £20,000 reward for information which leads to his whereabouts still stands.

Jordan, originally from Moston, was last seen on August 31, 2008, after he was dropped off by his aunt at around 4.45pm on Tib Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

At the time he went missing, Jordan was described as white, tall, of medium build and with short ginger hair and brown eyes.

He was wearing a black and grey jacket, black Nike tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

Police have digitally aged a picture of Jordan to show how he may look now.

In 2014, officers received intelligence that Jordan may have been seen in Portsmouth area, although there have been no further sightings.

Det Con Christopher Doggart said: “It is now more than eight years since Jordan’s disappearance, but efforts are still very much being made to find him.”

“Officers are revisiting lines of inquiry and making renewed searches of the GMP area, but information from the public could still prove crucial in this investigation.”

“The £20,000 reward that we offered for information leading to Jordan’s whereabouts still stands and I would urge people to study the images that we previously released showing Jordan as he is now more likely to look.”

“He was only 16 when he first went missing, but today, on his 25th birthday, he is likely to be significantly different in appearance.”

“We have a dedicated, 24-hour line to receive calls relating to his disappearance, so I am urging anyone who has any information, no matter how small they feel it might be, to get in touch as soon as possible.”

Last year Jordan’s aunt Kimberley Pierce said: “When I dropped Jordan off on Tib Street, not for one second did I believe it would be the last time I saw him.”
