Searches are underway for a young Leitrim man who was reported missing in Galway earlier this week.
Cathal Whelan was last seen in Clifden on Tuesday night and his family have issued appeals on social media yesterday evening in an attempt to get in contact with him.
Cathal was not seen in the area since, the Gardaí were informed of the situation on Thursday and inquiries are trying to establish his whereabouts.
Searches were organised in the Clifden area and searches continue this morning again in the hope of finding any clues as to the whereabouts of Cathal Whelan.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact any members of the Whelan family, or their local Garda station.
