SteliosBolton midfielder Stelios has launched a television appeal to assist the search for a Liverpool supporter who went missing in Crete last year while on holiday with friends.

Stelios made a plea on Greek Television asking for help from his fellow countrymen to locate Reds fan Steven Cook, now 21, who went missing at the beginning of his holiday back in September 2005.

The appeal was also to be shown on BBC North West on Friday night.

Despite several visits to the island by members of Steven's family and appeals on local and Greek Television there have been no confirmed sightings of Steven.

It is hoped that an appeal by such a highly-recognised and respected footballer will help highlight Steven's case as the new holiday season begins.

Stelios explained: "Steven is very much missed by his family and friends who want nothing more than for Steven to return home safely so they can get on with their lives once more. I am asking that if you saw anything suspicious in Malia on the night he disappeared or if you have seen anyone matching Steven's description, then please contact one of the following numbers below. Your help is needed."
