Champions League A campaign to find him had gone viral
There is relief for the family of Macauley Negus, a Liverpool supporter who was in Madrid for the Champions League final and who had gone missing.
It turns out that the fan from Plymouth had been arrested at around 02:00 CEST on Sunday morning after clashing with Spanish police.
This has been confirmed by police sources, who explained that the 23-year-old was drunk and could not immediately be identified.
He is now being processed by the Plaza de Castilla Court for the alleged crime of attacking a police officer.
A picture of him had been shared on social media as the family called for help in locating him and they have expressed their thanks for the sharing of their posts.
