No sign of missing Derry man Eamonn Moore has been found following fresh land, air and sea searches.
Family and friends of Mr Moore, who was last seen near the River Foyle on November 26, were joined by members of the public, PSNI boat and helicopter crews and Foyle Search and Rescue personnel in extensive searches over the weekend. Family members of the 22 year-old, from Jefferson Court in Derry told a press conference on Friday that they believed he may have taken his own life after sending a text message which simply read ‘sorry’ to two family members. Speaking on behalf of the family yesterday, Sinn Fein MLA Martina Anderson thanked all those who took part in the weekend search.
“For so many people to take part in a very extensive search is a source of strength to the Moore and Healy families at this traumatic time.”
She added: “Unfortunately no additional information on Eamonn’s movements has been found.
“The family are appealing to all property owners who may have vacant properties to please search all empty buildings. Likewise they are appealing for landowners to check outbuildings and walkers to report any sightings of clothing or other items that they may come across.
“Any little piece of information will be greatly appreciated by Eamonn’s family.”
