PSNI probe missing ferry man


Merseyside Police is becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of a 53-year-old Manchester man who went missing after taking a ferry to Belfast.

Daniel Bradley who has been missing since Tuesday, 19 May 2015.

He was seen at 9.30pm on Sunday, 17 May, by a friend and has not been in touch with any family or friends since then.

Police believe he booked a trip to Belfast and boarded the Liverpool to Belfast ferry on Monday night (18 May), having been last seen on the ferry in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Detectives are investigating whether Daniel got off the ferry and, if so, where he went from there. There is also potential that he may have fallen overboard, police said.

Officers are appealing to anyone who may have seen Daniel on the ferry, or who has any information which could help them with their inquiries to contact them. The investigation team is also liaising with officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland and Greater Manchester Police.

Daniel is a white male, 5ft 7in tall, with a slight athletic build and short grey hair.

He was wearing a black jacket with a white emblem on the left hand side, a white/light coloured shirt, a blue or black tie, black trousers and black shoes.

Officers have been in contact with Daniel’s family and a Family Liaison Officer is providing support.

Anyone who has any information which could help the police with their inquiries can contact Merseyside Police on 0151 777 2265.
