Craig was last seen three years ago on 6th January 2014, at the home of relatives on Norfolk Crescent in Failsworth
His parents reported him missing and an investigation was launched by detectives in Oldham. The investigation established Craig had confided in a friend to say he feared for his safety.
On Monday 24th February 2014 at about 10.40am, police were called to Dovestones Reservoir in Saddleworth, following reports that a body had been found.
"It is unclear why Craig was in Dovestones that night, we know he had no mode of transport and had no reason to be there."
“What we do know is that his phone was identified travelling from Newton Heath to Dovestones and arrived in the area at around 10.10pm and left 20 minutes later."
"I would also urge people to think back to the night of 6 January 2014 and get in touch if they saw anyone acting suspiciously or a car travelling to the area at that time of night."
The map shows where the phone's location was traced from the night of 6th January 2014 between 09:45pm and 10:30pm.

“Craig had plans for the rest of his life, plans that included his six-year-old son. He will never now be with his son at Christmas, birthdays, holidays and special days in his son’s life. His son asks questions about his dad, what do we tell him? Fortunately he has some memories, but he should have many more.
“Craig didn’t lose his life, his life was taken from him and the people responsible for his death could do this to someone else. We wouldn’t want any other family to go through the sadness we feel every day.
“We believe someone knows what happened to Craig. As a family, we are asking if anyone can help us find the answers we are looking for.”
Detective Chief Inspector Terry Crompton from GMP’s Major Incident Team is leading the investigation. He said "I would also urge people to think back to the night of 6 January 2014 and get in touch if they saw anyone acting suspiciously or a car travelling to the area at that time of night".
