Vinny disappeared after a night out with work colleagues on Friday 29 August 2003.
The married father-of-one is originally from Castle Donington, Leicestershire, but had relocated through work to Partington, Greater Manchester.
At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, blue denim Levi jeans and black lace up shoes.he was wearing cuff-links in the design of a tap with ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ on. He was wearing a silver ‘rope chain’ around his neck and a wedding ring.
Vinny was in possession of a turquoise-blue colour, Nokia 3650 camera phone. It had video capture, playback, and an integrated digital camera. It has not been found.'
Vinny was last seen leaving the Jabez Clegg night club on Dover Street, near the University of Manchester between 00:30 and 1am on that morning and it's thought that he got a lift, possibly in a taxi and was dropped off somewhere south of the city.
He’d been on a works night out but it seems he became separated from his colleagues during the evening and they left the club without him.
Vinny phoned his boss to tell her he was getting a taxi to her house, where he was due to stay the night. He never arrived.
