POLICE say they are growing increasingly concerned for the whereabouts of a young Wigan man.
Ashley Lynch, 22, from the Bryn area, was last seen in the Ashton area on Monday, and was spoken to on the telephone later that day.
However, that is the last communication Ashley has had with his family who, unable to trace him afterwards, contacted the police concerned for his safety.
On the day he went missing, he was wearing a grey tracksuit with dark stripes, a light grey or green padded jacket, a light grey or green peaked cap and black trainers.
He is known to frequent the Ashton, Bryn, Golborne and Lowton areas.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call police on 101.
