Gardaí in Co Cork are continuing to search for 11-year-old Robert Holohan, who has been missing from his home near Midleton for six days.
The youngster disappeared last Tuesday evening. The bicycle he received as a Christmas present was later found in a ditch around half a mile from his home.
Reports this morning said detectives had spoken to more than 50 registered sex offenders amid growing fears that the 11-year-old may have been abducted.
Gardaí also said they wanted to speak to the driver of a white van that was spotted in the Midleton area on the day of Robert’s disappearance.
