DC Jon Quinn of Preston Police said: “Steven’s disappearance is of great concern for us and his family are understandably distraught that a year has passed with no news.

“Have you seen Steven or a man matching his description?

“Steven’s family describe him as a kind soul who would talk to anyone.

“Perhaps you’ve had a conversation with him or may just recognise him as someone you have seen in the street.

“Any information, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, could be key to finding Steven and we need you to come forward.”

Steven is described as mixed race, 5ft 10in tall, of stocky build with cropped dark hair. He walks with a noticeable limp due to having cerebral palsy. Steven has links to the Preston and Chorley areas.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting log number 0820 of October 28 2018.

Alternatively independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
