Police are trying to locate a former Bradford City footballer who has gone missing from his home in Yorkshire.

Kyle Nix, 28, who played for the club for two seasons between 2007 and 2009, was last seen this morning (Mon) at his home in Westfield Road, Bramley, Rotherham, in South Yorkshire at around 7.30 am.

South Yorkshire Police were alerted and have since asked the public for help to trace the sportsman.

When he disappeared, Kyle was believed to be wearing blue and white striped pyjama trousers and fawn tee shirt with the Gucci logo across the chest.

He is described as white, tanned, around five feet eight inches tall and slim, with dark brown hair and blue eyes.

He has a full ‘sleeve’ tattoo on his right arm, with a stars and clouds pattern.

Police believe Kyle is on foot and does not have a telephone with him.

Police say his family are becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare because his disappearance is out of character.

Anyone who sees Kyle is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 126 of 2 June 2014.
