The Manchester Evening News reports that he left the party in the early hours of the morning but did not return to his home in Crewe, Cheshire.

His friends told the website that they believed he travelled by taxi to A&E at Tameside Hospital in Ashton-under-Lyne but he never checked in and has not communicated with anyone since.

A friend of Gudmonson’s, Brad Chipling, said: “He was last seen at a party in central Manchester.

“He was then seen in Ashton, he was supposed to be going to hospital. But he never arrived.

“A couple of our friends are with his mum, she is really worried.”

The DJ has been reported missing to Cheshire Police.


Anyone with further information over Jonathan Gudmonson’s whereabouts can contact Cheshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
