“It’s just very out of character for him and the whole family are very worried,” said Mr O’Donoghue. “He hasn’t made contact since Friday morning. He left around 8.30am to go to work but never showed up. His last contact was a Viber message around 9.15am but his phone is off since, so we are all very concerned.”

Mr O’Donoghue said John’s parents, family, friends, and work colleagues were all very concerned for his safety and called on anyone with any information to contact them or the gardaí.

“Everyone is just very worried,” he said. “It is just terrible sitting here and not knowing what to do. We are just trying to get through it. We are asking for anyone with information, even if you think it’s insignificant, please get in touch and let us know.”
