His devastated father Michael said that Trevor's disappearance keeps him awake at night.

Speaking on Morning Ireland on RTE Radio One, he said: "We know nothing else after that, that’s the really mysterious thing about it.

“That’s what keeps us awake at night.

“It was something that I as a father, listening to the radio reports of missing people, I thought ‘I hope we’re never touched by that’... it’s so long and drawn out. Here we are 14 years on.”

Gardaí have renewed their appeal for anyone who may have information in relation to Trevor’s disappearance to contact the incident room at Pearse Street Garda Station on 016669000 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666111
