The parents of 17-year-old Adam Pickup who died following a Christmas night out in Manchester have told KEY103 that Street Angels may help stop another tragedy.
Adam went missing on December the 28th. His body was found on wasteland near to Deansgate Station two days later. Thousands of people joined the search for Adam using social media, and in the aftermath KEY 103 set up a campaign to recruit teams of volunteers to help make Manchester safer.
Our Chief Reporter Michelle Livesey went to meet Adam's dad Chris and mum Chantal at their home in Stockport:
Funny, popular, and a genuinely nice young man - they are just some of words and phrases used to describe Adam.
The first Street Angel teams will go on patrol in Manchester City Centre on Friday 14th November. Manchester Street Angels is a registered Charity with the Christian Nightlife Initiative Network. If you want to become a volunteer or simply donate visit: www.manchesterstreetangels.com
