THE brother of a man who was found dead at the side of a road after being missing for several days has paid tribute to him.
Eugene 'Geno' Charles (58), of Aughavas, Co Leitrim, was last seen in the early hours of Friday as he left a local bar.
Family members were concerned as Mr Charles, who was visually impaired, did not have jacket with him and temperatures had dropped.
After three days of searches, Mr Charles' remains were discovered on Wednesday afternoon on a quiet roadway not far from where he was last seen.
His brother, Micheal, said: "We are a close family. He had a lot of nieces and nephews and was very good to them. He was a kind-hearted man."
