Downpatrick Man Missing

The mother of a missing Downpatrick man has appealed to the public for help with finding her son, one week since he was last seen.

Darryl Wade, 31 years, is believed to have left Downpatrick and travelled to Westport, County Mayo, on Thursday 8th December.   

He was last seen leaving a property in the Cluain Padraig / Quay Road area of Westport in the early hours of Saturday, 10th December. 

Darryl is described as approximately 5ft 8in in height.  He is of slim build with short, dirty-fair hair and has a short beard. He has a scar on the back of his head, his name tattooed on his back and tribal style tattoos on his right arm. 

Darryl Wade from Downpatrick has been reported missing.

Darryl’s mother Maria McConvey said: “Our family has been devastated since Darryl went missing. We just want him to make contact and let us know he is okay. 

“He would normally speak with us almost every day and it is extremely out of character for him not to be in touch.  We hope that people reading this will help us with the search and reunite him with his family in time for Christmas.”

Sergeant Ritchie said: “There have been no sightings of Darryl since last Saturday.  We would appeal to the people of Westport, particularly in the Cluain Padraig / Quay Road area, to check their gardens, outbuildings and anywhere else Darryl may have sought shelter.

“If anyone who has any information on his whereabouts, please contact police on 101, quoting reference 969 of 11/12/22 and help us to reunite Darryl with his family.”
