Gardaí have launched a murder investigation following the disappearance of a man in the West of Ireland six years ago.
48-year-old Patrick Heeran was last seen in the Leitrim town of Mohill at 4.20pm on October 3, 2011.
It is understood a search is being carried out in the surrounding areas and today Gardaí will launch a public appeal in the town.
Mr Heeran, who is described as being five foot nine, of stocky build, with fair hair, was last seen wearing brown shoes, blue jeans and a brown jacket.
Anyone who can help with the investigation is asked to contact Gardaí.
