Gardaí in Wexford are seeking the public’s assistance in tracing the whereabouts of Joe Delaney, (52), who has been missing from the Wexford town area since Sunday, November 14th.
Joe is approximately 5 foot 6 inches in height. He discharged himself from Wexford General Hospital. It is unknown what Joe was last seen wearing.
Gardaí became extremely concerned for the man’s welfare after his motorbike was discovered abandoned on the Burrow or Rosslare Point.
An intensive search involving Gardaí, the RNLI and the Coast Guard’s Rescue 117 helicopter was launched in Wexford Harbour on Thursday morning in a bid to find Joe. The Coast Guard helicopter carried out large sweeps of Wexford Harbour, stretching from Rosslare Point right out to Raven Point.
Anyone with information on Joe’s whereabouts are asked to contact Wexford Garda Station on 053 9165200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any other Garda Station.
