A Dublin man who had been missing since Electric Picnic has been found safe.

An online campaign was launched after father-of-three Sean Byrne (24) went missing.

But today Mr Byrne's relieved family confirmed that he's been found safe.

Until this afternoon, the last contact his family had from him was to let them know he was leaving Co Laois.

Earlier today, Sean's sister Bella told independent.ie the last contact they had with the young dad was on Tuesday.

"Sean was due to come back from the Electric Picnic festival on Monday. He was last seen on Monday at the festival by his friends but he was with a group they didn’t recognise," she said.

"He got in contact with his girlfriend on Tuesday and said he was on his way home, he was getting a lift and he should be home in two or three hours. We haven’t heard from him since.

"The battery on his mobile phone is dead and he isn’t carrying his wallet or ID with him. He just has his clothes and his sleeping bag," she added.

Sean has a casual style and is believed to be wearing a t-shirt and jeans. He lives with his girlfriend and three children and works at the Grange Golf Club.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Rathfarnham Garda station on 01-6666500 or the Garda confidential line on 1800 666 111.
