There is major concern for the welfare of the 20-year-old son of a man who was shot dead in January 2009, as he has not been seen since last Saturday.

There have been no sightings of Glen Murphy from Cappagh Avenue in Finglas, Co Dublin, since he signed himself out of the Mater Hospital shortly after noon last Saturday.

Glen is the son of gangland figure Graham McNally who was 34 when he was shot dead in January 2009. His body was found in a ditch at Coldwinters, north Dublin, on the former Dublin to Derry road.

Despite his murdered dad's criminal past, Glen – also known as Glen McNally – has no involvement in serious crime.

He was aged 15 when his father was brutally murdered, and then had to deal with the gangland murder of his uncle, Graham's brother, Alan McNally. Alan was aged 36 when he was shot dead by the same gang in a Finglas pub in February 2012.

Gardai have launched an official appeal for information about Glen's disappearance.

A garda spokesman said: "Glen was last seen on Saturday the 12th of April at approximately 12.30pm in the vicinity of the Mater Hospital. He is described as being 6ft 1in, of athletic build with red hair. When last seen he was wearing a red 'Regatta' fleece and navy Adidas bottoms."

Sources say foul play is not suspected. Anybody who has seen Glen Murphy or who can assist in locating him is asked to contact Finglas garda station on 01 666 7500, the Garda Confidential Line on 800 666 111 or any garda station.
