Yarwood posted a blank black screen to his Instagram story on Wednesday.

On Thursday morning, celebrities and several footballers, including Moore - now at Cardiff City - and England defender Kyle Walker shared the appeal for help to find him on Instagram.

Walker wrote: “If anyone knows or has seen Dom Yarwood in Manchester, contact 999 urgently.”
