Missing ex-footballer found safe
Former footballer Clarke Carlisle has been found safe, police said.
Lancashire Police said the former Burnley player, pictured right, was found in Liverpool and thanked the public for sharing a missing persons appeal.
The 37-year-old had last been seen by a family member in Preston on Thursday afternoon, sparking concern.
The former Professional Footballers’ Association chairman, who made more than 500 appearances for nine clubs during his playing career, has a history of mental illness and had tried to take his own life in December 2014 when he jumped into the path of a 12-tonne lorry on the A64.
