The family of a man missing from his home near Bailieborough, presumed murdered, has made a fresh appeal for vital information from locals they believe are keeping quiet.
In a statement, the family say that they believe locals in the county have information they are withholding from gardaí about the disappearance of Gerard Daly from his Cornaveagh home in June of 2011.
His disappearance was upgraded to murder earlier this year and is being investigated as part of the execution-style murder of his neighbour, ex-Garda John Kerins, with whom he was once friendly, in December of last year.
“It’s 26 months we have been searching for Gerard,” they said. “That’s 26 months of wondering where our brother is, and why the person or persons who know where we can find him continue to watch us go through this hell when all it would take is one phone call to end it.
“We know there is more than one person in Cavan, who could end this nightmare for us yet you sit and watch us go through this.
“What if it was your child who was missing all this time? Or the father of your children, your brother, or husband? Would you think it humane to be kept in dark not knowing and always wondering if you will ever get him back? If you have the information we need to bring Gerard home, or know who has the information please find a way to let us know.”
