Now 22, he is originally from the Moston area, Jordan was last seen on 31 August 2008, after being dropped off around 4.45pm on Tibb Street in Manchester by his aunt.

Now police have turned their hunt for Hampshire after he was reported to have been spotted in Portmsouth.

He is described as white, of medium build, tall with short ginger hair and brown eyes.

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

GMP Missing Persons Investigating Officer Julie Potts, said: "It has been nearly six years since Jordan was seen and his family, as well as the police, continue to be concerned for his safety.

"We have recently received some intelligence that Jordan may be in the Portsmouth area I want to appeal directly to Jordan.

"Please contact either police, family or friends as six years is a long time without being in touch. You are not in any trouble, your family just want to know you are safe and well.

"I would urge anyone who may have seen Jordan or know where he may be staying to get in touch."
