Gussie, the youngest in a family of four, lived with his parents Bob and Nancy at Ashbrook on Ennis road.

An employee of Dell in Castletroy, Gussie finished work this Friday afternoon and went to Coopers bar in St Joseph Street with friends.

He was due to stay that night with friends in St Joseph Street but did not do so. It has been established that he left the bar on his own at 10.30pm and walked from there onto Old School House lane, which connects with Barrington Street.

That is the last sighting of Gussie - and family and friends have not seen or heard from him since.

When he did not return to work the following Monday, February 14, his family reported him as a missing person to the authorities.

Gussie has been described as being of 5ft 10in tall, slim at 10 stone with a pale complexion and short fair hair.

Aengus's family and Gardaí are appealing for anyone - especially taxi drivers - who may have seen Gussie this Friday night or early the following morning to come forward, or have useful information and who have not been in contact previously, to do so now.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Roxboro Road Garda Station on 061 214340, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
