Football club Glasgow City FC worried another weekend after their player Clare Shine, 25, had disappeared. The Irish national team player was finally found on the night of the disappearance. He posted a picture of himself on the hospital bed at the time.
The club announced the disappearance of its player on Twitter and at the same time asked for help in finding the missing one. The reason for Shine's disappearance has not been told to the public.
- Our player and good friend Clare Shine disappeared at 9.30 this morning. He was last seen in Roslin in Midlothian, but he has been able to travel anywhere, the club tweeted at the time, according to Scottish media Glasgow Live.
The post has since been removed from the club's Twitter account.
The next day, Glasgow City FC thanked the football community for their support and announced that the player had been found.
- On behalf of Clare and the club, a heartfelt thank you for all the messages, calls, love and good wishes sent yesterday. There is a long way to go and we are 100% supportive of Clare every step of the way. Now is the time to recover and we know everyone respects the privacy they need, club tweet.
The Irish Sun also said the club had announced on Twitter that Shine, who had a mental health problem, was now getting help with her problems.
The day after, the player himself tweeted a picture of himself in the hospital.
- Thanks everybody. I'm having a hard time, and that's okay. I will come back. Take care of yourself, Shine wrote in her tweet, which has since been deleted, according to an Irish newspaper.
The talent, wading through Irish age-old teams, spoke to the Irish Examiner in January about their mental health problems.
He has suffered from depression, massive sleep deprivation and alcohol abuse. In October 2018, Shine attempted suicide.
- I suffered in silence for a really long time and in a way I denied my problem. When I understood it and got control of my situation, I felt I could pass on my experience to others in the same situation, Shine explained in the paper his decision to talk about his problems in public.
Shine, who played seven national matches in an Irish shirt, moved from his home country of Cork City back to the Glasgow City team last year. He scored in the first match after his return against the Stirling University team.
