Liam Colgan is missing in Hamburg, Germany

Dundee United captain Willo Flood has issued an appeal to help find missing Scottish man Liam Colgan.

Liam, 29 from Inverness, has not been seen since the early hours of Saturday morning after disappearing on a stag-do in the German city of Hamburg.

The postman was last seen in the Reeperbahn area and his friends and family are becoming increasingly concerned about his whereabouts, saying his going missing is entirely out of character.

The alarm was raised on social media over the weekend and now United captain Willow Flood has joined in the appeal to get Liam home.

Liam is a Dundee United fan and midfielder Flood has asked for his message to be shared to raise awareness of the young man’s disappearance.

Willo Flood said: “Liam disappeared in Hamburg on Saturday, in the early hours of the morning on February 10.

“Liam’s family have asked for everyone to share this to raise awareness, they want him home safe and sound.

“Liam, if you see this buddy, get in touch as soon as possible.”

Police officers have scoured hospitals and taxi offices in the city and are now concentrating much of their efforts in the harbour area.

Hamburg Police spokesman Ulf Wundrack said: “We have taken all imaginable detection and investigation measures, including hospitals and taxi offices.

“Of course it is not normal for people to disappear in Hamburg. He does not know his way about and had been drinking, which makes this a difficult situation.

“We have teams searching canals and rivers.”

Family friend Alan Pearson, who was on the trip which was organised by Mr Colgan, said: “We are getting more and more concerned for Liam as time goes on.

“The police investigation has now stepped up but, despite various sightings being reported, there is unfortunately no news of Liam’s whereabouts.”

The keen musician is his brother’s best man and had planned the trip to Germany prior to the wedding in Inverness next month.
