Search underway for a missing pensioner in Cork

A SEARCH is underway for an elderly man reported missing in west Cork.

The 82 year old went for a walk at 5pm in a wooded area outside Bantry but failed to return home as normal.

The alarm was raised by concerned family and friends with locals searching woodland and farmland from 9pm.

It is understood the pensioner went for a walk every day.

When last seen yesterday (Monday) he was wearing a warm coat and clothing.

It is feared the man may have injured himself and somehow become incapacitated.

Gardai and the Irish Coastguard are liaising with locals over the search operation.
