Officers say they remain highly concerned for the whereabouts of a man who went missing nearly a week ago following a night out with friends.

Artur Liana, 32, who is from Northampton, was last seen in the early hours of Saturday, December 22. He was reported missing by friends when he failed to return home following a night out in the town. He had become separated from his friends and CCTV footage shows him outside the Borjia nightclub in Castillian Street at approximately 1.35am on Saturday morning. Despite extensive searches by police, there have been no further sightings of him.

Detective Inspector Louise Fleckney, who is leading the search, said: “We are growing increasingly concerned for Mr Liana’s safety. He has not been in contact with any of his friends or family over the Christmas period and this is extremely out of character.

“We have carried out extensive searches around the town centre, which have not revealed anything, and we believe he may have come to harm.

“If anyone who was in the area of Castillian Street and the town centre early Saturday morning thinks they may have seen Mr Liana, please call Northampton CID on 101.

Mr Liana is a 32-year-old Polish man, described as white, around 6ft 2in, of medium build with short dark hair. He was wearing a smart, dark coloured suit jacket with a lighter coloured shirt, smart casual trousers in a lighter colour than the suit jacket, with black shoes.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen Mr Liana on Saturday morning or over the past few days.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
