A GRANDMOTHER has spoken of her massive relief when her missing 12-year-old grandson was found safe and well having travelled to Gorey with a group of friends without telling her.
Ned Connors Cash, who lives with his grandmother in Booterstown in Dublin, had been missing for a total of eight days before eventually turning up at Pearse Street Garda Station in Dublin. A missing person operation had been launched by Gardaí and he was last seen with friends in Bray, however as it turned out, Ned was safe and well the whole time and had travelled as far as Gorey with older friends.
Initial sightings of Ned emerged from the Greystones area and other parts of Wicklow, but the more the days went on, the more distressed Ms Moorehouse became. It emerged that Ned had been travelling around with older friends and they had been sleeping in tents.
'Ned was in Gorey when he was told that his photo was in the newspaper,' said Ann. 'He was told to go home. I don't know who put him on the train in Gorey, but he walked into Pearse Street Garda Station in Dublin and the guards contacted me.'
Ann said that her young grandson apologised profusely for the incident and said he'd 'never do it again' .
