    Missing in Manchester; phone (perhaps) in Edinburgh, 220 miles to the north; apparently lost and confused after the Stone Roses concert. It doesn't sound good.

    The Manchester Evening News (MEN) also had an article where they refer to a map. Unfortunately I (and many of the commenters) couldn't see the map. Perhaps someone here can and could post it?

    Here's the link:

    I am sincerely hoping that this young man is found safe. He's been missing too long already. Where could he be??

    This is where the venue is - Heaton park. Its a 75000 person capacity venue and apparently the tickets all sold out as it was a reunion show. The thing i think is concerning is the fact there is a large body of water nearby.
    Everything above is just my lowly opinion.

    Guardian and BBC News accounts add a bit.

    Postmortem tomorrow; am wondering if the phone were really in Edinburgh.

    So very sad.

    Apparently it's five miles from Heaton Park. The location is actually near to where the BBC studios are, in Salford.

    Metrolink CCTV could solve Chris Brahney mystery after body found in Manchester Ship Canal (Manchester Evening News)
    Police believe CCTV footage taken at tram stops could hold the key to finding out what happened to tragic Chris Brahney.
    ---
    The M.E.N. has learned that detectives have now requested hours of CCTV footage from a number of Metrolink tram stations in a bid to piece together his final movements.

    Tapes from on-street cameras between Heaton Park, where he was last seen by friends, and Salford Quays, where his body was found yesterday, are also being assessed by officers.

    Police still seeking witnesses

    Police are appealing for people witnessed near Chris on CCTV to come forward, do you know these people?
