Merseyside Police issued a public appeal to help find Jack Irvine after he left his home in Thingwall at 9am on Sunday and never returned. However, police confirmed on Monday that Jack has been located.

Merseyside Police and North Wales police conducted extensive enquiries over the weekend as concerns for his welfare mounted, with Jack thought to have headed to Moel Famau in Wales.
