THE mother of a missing man has said her last words to her beloved son were ‘please come home’.

Andrejs Maisaks (32) has been missing since Tuesday and his car was found in Kilcock, Co Kildare on Thursday.

The father of one was depressed before he went missing because he was made redundant last winter, his mother Maya told today.

Andrejs’s father died from a heart attack last year at the age of 51.

Maya said: “I’m so distressed. Today is one week since he’s been missing. He’s such a good boy.”

“I was talking with him on the Monday afternoon and he was in a depressed state because last winter he was made redundant and he’s had no job and he’s been very depressed.”

“I said to him ‘please come home. I’ll buy you the ticket, please come home’. Those were my last words to him, and one Tuesday he was missing, and on Thursday his car was found in a graveyard in Kilcock.”

Mr Maisaks had worked at Orange Business Services for seven years before he was made redundant.

His mother says it is “out of character” for him to disappear without any contact.

“I was worried about him. I said I was going to call him everyday, and I did. Now all the time it goes to voicemail.”

“He has good friends and this is out of character for him. He’s a very nice, friendly person.”

 “It’s so horrible. His brother Kasbars is here with me searching for him. We have searched all around Kilcock between the areas of Summerhill and Enfield which is a huge area.”

“People are looking for him, but there have been no signs at all. They don’t know the exact location. Maybe he’s in bad health or maybe he’s unconscious.”

Andrejs is described as being six feet in height, of slight build, with fair hair and green eyes. When he was last seen, he was wearing a red and brown coloured light jacket, blue jeans, and black shoes.

“Maybe someone called him. Maybe someone picked him up. Maybe he was on camera going with someone or alone or going some place,” Maya said.

“It’s now the fourth day and I still don’t know about his phone records.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Swords Garda Station on 01 6664700, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666111 or any garda station.
