The son of former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland football star Paul McGrath has been found after he issued a social media appeal.

The defender, who also played for Aston Villa, used Twitter on Thursday to ask for help in finding his missing son Paul.

Yesterday afternoon McGrath (59) told followers his son had been found and thanked them for their support.

He wrote: "Thanks to the power of social media & Metropolitan Police my son Paul has been located.

"The love and support shown to myself and my family has been phenomenal.

"From the bottom of our hearts we thank you..."
