    There's a post already about this in the UCD forum but it may need repeating here:
    RTE News wrote:
    Gardaí in Dublin are seeking the public’s help in locating a 21-year-old man who has been missing for four days.

    Richard Wellwood of Highfield Mews in Rathmines was last seen at 3.37am on Saturday outside the Abrakebabra restaurant on Westmoreland Street.

    He was wearing blue jeans, white Nike runners and a grey hooded top with the hood pulled up. He is described as being 1.9m (6′3″ - 6′4″) in height, well built and with brown hair.

    Anyone with any information is asked to contact Pearse Street Garda Station on 01-6669000.

    I was getting the Nitelink around that time so it's a bit scary. Hopefully he's found well and this is not another case like Trevor Deely.

    My girlfriend is very close to his Mam. The family are sending round an e-mail appeal, as below:

    Hi,

    Please can you read attached document and forward to anyone you know.
    At the moment my brother Richard has been missing since Friday night / Saturday morning. He was last seen on Westmoreland St between 3:30 and 4:00 am.

    He was wearing a grey hooded top with hood pulled up, blue jeans and
    white Nike runners.

    If you can pass this on to everyone you know then hopefully we may get
    further information as to his whereabouts. Any information please
    contact Pearse St. Garda station on
    01 6669000.

    Thanks,

    Paul Wellwood

    I have also attached the Word doc that is accompanying the e-mail. It contains a picture and some more info.

    i remember a few years back, here was a guy from Leixlip who disappeared. he was found about a year later in france. said he just wanted to get away from it all. sounds selfish, but sometimes people feel they need a new start and want to leave everything behind.
    if he's been spotted, then it's possible he was doing something similar.
    i know that's little comfort to his family and friends, but at least there is still hope that he is alive and well.

    As i said earlier in the thread, Richard was a close friend of mine. His family have identified his body. postmortem now being carried out


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,767 ✭✭✭ Hugh Hefner


    Wow, I passed dozens of those flyers, on the UCD campus, on Wednesday. I can remember thinking, "Sure, either he'll be found or he has run off to a new life." I guess you just think these things only happen "far away". Hmmm...
