The family of a Derry man who went missing at the weekend have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Relatives of Creggan man Gary Campbell (31) issued the appeal this morning ahead of fresh searches along the banks of the River Foyle today.

Gary’s sister Sinead Cassidy said the whole family were extremely worried about Gary.

Sinead said her CCTV footage has been retrieved by the PSNI which places her brother at the corner of Sackville Street in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Relatives have been trying to locate him ever since, and a major new search involving volunteers from Foyle Search and Rescue, is due to start this afternoon.

“There is a lot of people looking to help,” Sinead said. “Everybody has come together.

“When he was last seen he was wearing black slippers, dark jeans, a black puffy heavy coat and a checked yellow, black and blue checked shirt.

“He has ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’ tattooed on either side of his neck.

“We are all extremely anxious.”

Hundreds of people have shared the missing person appeal posted on Facebook over the weekend.

Police at Strand Road meanwhile this morning renewed their appeal for information regarding Gary’s whereabouts.

PSNI Inspector Les Craig said, “I appeal to Gary or anyone who knows where he is or has been in contact with Gary to contact police at Strand Road on the non-emergency number 101.”
