“John has been found safe. Thank you to everyone for their help and information,” said the post.

In a statement, gardaí thanked both the public and the media for their assistance in the search and said that the matter was now closed.

Concerns mounted for Mr O’Sullivan’s safety on Friday when had did not arrive at work as normal.

His last contact had been via a Viber message at 9.15am that morning and he was last seen driving a red Ford Fiesta.
