Pubmaster spokeswoman Debbie Armstrong said: "We can confirm that the previous manager has left The Inkerman and we are currently trying to find his whereabouts.
"Today the pub is re-opening with a temporary manager.
"Pubmaster owns The Inkerman and the tenant, GRS Ltd which appointed the previous manager, is working with us to find out what has happened."
A regular customer of the pub said he arrived at 6.55pm on Friday, and was drinking with friends when a barmaid told him the pub had to close to abide by licensing rules, because the landlord was not present.
Customers then had to leave the premises, not knowing what had happened to Mr Ross and his girlfriend Samantha.
