    He was partying with pals at the Hamborger Veermaster bar as part of his brother's stag do celebrations.

    The Veermaster is located at Reeperbahn, Hamburg’s entertainment and red-light district. It was freezing cold here on Saturday, though it was sunny with clear blue sky during the day. Hope he‘s fine and didn‘t walk too close to the water (Elbe river nearby) while intoxicated.

    What is the area Liam went missing like does it have a lot of crime?

    He could have fell in the water by accident or Liam could have got in a fight with someone.

    There was a stabbing reported at Reeperbahn that night but the victim‘s age did not match Liam. Reeperbahn is a fun and red-light district. Dealers and prostitutes mix with regular party people and tourists from all over the world at night. Taxi offices and hospitals have been informed, but no leads so far. The Elbe has a heavy drift and the St. Pauli pears nearby are not secured: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Pauli_Piers

    They also started searching the Elbe but the weather is pretty rough now. Last year, Timo Kraus, head of merchandising of HSV sport club went missing after a night out. They finally discovered his body 11 weeks later:

    The name "Reeperbahn" comes from the old German word Reep meaning "heavy rope". In the 18th century, heavy hempen ropes were produced here for sailing ships in the Hamburg harbor. Reeperbahn means „Rope Walk“.

    It is not good Liam was very inebriated. I hope the water is being searched thoroughly. What a nightmare for his loved ones.
