A DUBLIN man missing since last July has been found dead in Blackpool.

81-year-old Thomas Kennedy was last seen putting out the bins at his Finglas home last summer.

He left his mobile phone and wallet at home at the time of his disappearance and hasn’t been seen since.

The family confirmed on Facebook that his body was recovered – and that they are waiting for the coroner in the UK to release him so they can lay him to rest.

The statement said: “It is with great sadness that we would like to inform you that the body of Thomas Kennedy has been recovered.

“Tommy's family would like to extend their thanks to people from all over the country who have been involved in the effort to bring him home.

“Our condolences to family and friends of Thomas.”
