“It is very unlike John to go missing.”
Family and friends of Dublin man John Keaveney, who has been missing for ten days, have asked Cork householders to check their CCTV cameras and dash cams for any clues as to his whereabouts.
John (43) is married with three young children and was on holiday with his family in Cork when he became ill, then left hospital in Wilton in a disorientated state. He was last seen at 1.45am on Monday, August 21st in the Marina area and was wearing a pair of navy trousers, a grey Umbro hoodie with the Irish soccer logo, and white runners.
“John has medical issues and has epilepsy. He had been having seizures in the days before he disappeared and may have had some since.” a spokesperson for the search effort told us.
He left the hospital and was disorientated, he spent two hours trying to find a hotel but because of his confusion, he couldn’t quite manage it.
“Gardaí have traced John’s movements on CCTV. He was trying to charge his phone and was tracked onto Centre Park road and then last seen on CCTV in the Páirc uí Chaoimh area.
“It is very unlike John to go missing, he is a very social person and very active on social media normally his phone has not been on since he disappeared.
“The family is appealing to anyone with CCTV cameras covering any of the exit points from the Greenway or the broader area to review their CCTV footage from approximately 2am on Monday morning to see if there is any sighting of John and to get in touch if they think there is or have any leads however small.”
If you have or receive any info on John’s whereabouts, call or message 083 462 2598 or call 1800 666 111.
