Former rugby league star Bryn Hargreaves, who previously played for Wigan Warriors, St Helens and Bradford Bulls, has not been seen for over two weeks
The family of a former rugby league star who has been missing from his home have appealed for help in finding him.
He had been in regular touch with his family but they have not heard from him since just after New Year.
His younger brother David said: “We are desperate to find him.
“He was single and lived alone, the last time we spoke was January 3.
“He doesn’t have a car and will either be using Ubers or walking.
“His apartment was found to be empty on January 12 so we contacted the police after that.”
He had been living in Morgantown, West Virginia, where police say he has been reported as missing.
Former St Helens teammate Paul Sculthorpe has joined a social media campaign to find the ex-rugby league player.
He tweeted: “He’s a good fella Bryn… hopefully he is found safe and well.”
Hargreaves, a prop forward who began his career with Wigan in 2004, also played for St Helens in their 2008 Super League Grand Final defeat by Leeds Rhinos.
He joined Bradford Bulls in 2010 but quit the sport two years later after 167 top-flight appearances.
Luke Mawson, media manager at Bradford Bulls said: “We are waiting for some good news to come through. We have shared this on our social media channel to try to increase the awareness of it.
“We hope he is found safe and well – fingers crossed we get some good news. He did many positive things for us; we are thinking about him and his family at this moment in time.”
