Gardaí in Cavan are appealing for information in relation to the whereabouts of a missing man.
Pat O'Brien, from Kilnavara near Cavan Town, has been missing since yesterday evening (Thursday). He was last seen at Harry's on the Dublin Road in Cavan Town, when it is thought he may have been picked up by a driver at 6.15pm. Though CCTV has placed him walking past Liberty Insurance on the Dublin Road at around 6:30pm.
His family are concerned for his safety and his daughter Saibhe has issued a Facebook appeal on his whereabouts (see below).
Speaking to the Celt, Saibhe said: "He's approximately six foot, of medium build with black/grey hair. He was wearing a checked shirt, a navy fleece and dark trousers. We're mainly trying to find out if anybody picked him up on the Dublin Road and if so where did they drop him?"
He was carrying a small black rucksack at the time.
Although not yet missing for 24 hours, a garda spokesperson said that they are treating the case as a missing person and said that Mr O'Brien's disappearance is "totally out of character".
The spokesperson is urging anybody with any information on Mr O'Brien's whereabouts or who may have seen him to contact either the family or Cavan Gardaí on 04943-31300.
