The partner of a missing Dublin man has appealed to the public to help locate his silver Toyota Carolla car, which would prove a crucial clue in locating him.

Patrick Wright (39) was last seen leaving the McDonald’s Restaurant, outside Blanchardstown shopping centre and beside Leisureplex,  on Monday at around 10.30am.

He failed to return to his home in Portmarnock County Dublin.

His partner Deirdre told independent.ie: “The car is what we’re really looking for now. The phone was pinged off the Dunshaughlin garda station on Tuesday at 11.30pm and again at 2.20pm, but there’s a 25-kilometre radius around for that mast.”

“His phone went dead around 4pm on Tuesday. We’ve put out fliers, we’ve been on radio stations, a heliocopter has been out, and we’re working with volunteer group in Finglas to search for him.”

Nothing has come up. We’ve rang bus stations, we’ve checked the ferrys… If someone sees something, we’re just so anxious now.”

Patrick is described as being 5'5" in height, of slight build with grey receding hair.

When last seen he was wearing a grey jumper with wine sleeves, 'Stihl' work wear trousers and black coloured 'Stihl' boots.

He may be driving a silver coloured Toyota Carolla hatchback, registration number 04WD2519.

A garda spokesperson said: "Investigating Gardaí are concerned for Patrick’s welfare and are appealing to anyone with information to contact them at Coolock Garda Station on 01 6664200, The Garda Confidential Line, 1800 666111 or any Garda Station."
