A STONE Roses fan who has been missing since their reunion gig in Manchester could have got on a coach to Doncaster.

Friends and family of Chris Brahney have launched a campaign to find the 22-year-old who not been seen since about 11.30pm on June 29.

One sighting suggests that Chris may have got on a coach with a couple from Doncaster, in their 30s. They were wearing green Parker style coats with German flags on.

It has been reported that the coach was a number 27 - operated by Millenium Concert Travel.

Chris had left the Heaton Park gig with his friends but returned as he had lost his Sony Ericsson mobile.

The Stone Roses themselves have put an appeal on their website to try to help find Chris.

They said: “If you saw Christopher at the end of the evening please get in touch with Greater Manchester Police and spread the word to everyone who came to the show.

“Our thoughts are with Christopher’s family and we all want to see him back at home safe and sound.”

Detective chief inspector Melani Linton, said: “Christopher’s family are clearly very worried about him and are desperate for any information relating to his whereabouts.

“We believe Chris may have used the park and ride facility at Bowlee Park, Heywood Old Road, Middleton. There were dozens of coaches in the car park with destinations all over the country.

“Chris could have got on one of these coaches, did you see him or speak to him?

“I would urge anyone with any information to contact the police, this could be vital to our investigation and provide some much needed answers for his family.

“Christopher, if you see or hear this appeal, we would ask that you make contact with us or your family as soon as possible.”
