"He was hard working, honest and loyal with a keen sense of fun and unique humour. He was quiet, thoughtful and kind. He was an able cook but his favourite pastime was football, an active supporter of Norwich City and player for Mill Brow, Mellor and his works team at Arden Dies.

"He was a very popular person with those he'd played cricket with at Marple Cricket Club, his football teammates and the Cheltenham Crew, very close friends who regularly walked the local hills and visited Cheltenham races every Spring.

"He loved spending time with family and friends. His family thanks the Police, friends and local community for their considerable efforts in the search phase. RIP Chris, we will always love you and cherish the wonderful times you gave us. The Barlows."

His family have requested privacy while Chris’s loved one’s grieve for their loss.
