The family of a West Midlands man who has not been seen since he went out in Manchester to celebrate the new year are urging him to contact them.

Gurdeep Hayer, 20, from West Bromwich, went to stay with friends in Egerton Road, Fallowfield, on New Year's Eve.

He went out that night and went out again with friends the following night to Sankey's in Manchester city centre.

He was last seen leaving the Radium Street club on his own at 02:30 GMT on 2 January.

His family are working with police to appeal to him to get in touch.

Mr Hayer was last seen wearing a navy blue polo shirt, black or blue jeans and trainers.

'Want to know'

He is Asian with a medium build, about 5ft 11in (1.8m) with spiky black hair with stubble, and speaks with a Midlands accent.

Supt Hughie Hardiman, of South Manchester CID, said: "Gurdeep's family are clearly fraught with worry for him, as nobody has seen or heard anything from him for more than five days now.

"They simply want to know he is safe.

"We have been offering them every support and they have been assisting our ongoing inquiries.

"He was last seen leaving Sankeys but did not manage to make it back to his friend's house.

"We would urge anyone who may have seen him or spoken to him in Sankeys or anywhere else in the area to contact us."
