The brother of a young man who has been missing for 12 days said he will keep searching "no matter how long it takes".

Stephen Cullinan (25), from Ballymackey, Nenagh, Co Tipperary, has been missing from Castletroy, Co Limerick, since November 3.

His brother Brian is working alongside the gardaí and friends and family as they continue the search for Stephen.

Mr Cullinan is described as 5ft 11in, of medium build with short, fair hair.

He was last seen wearing a hoodie and jeans and wears glasses.

He has been spotted in St Stephen's Green, Dublin since he went missing almost two weeks ago.

Brian said he will continue the search "until we get the result we all want".

The young man said family and friends are continuing to work alongside gardaí and the farming community in the search for Stephen.

"No matter how long it takes, we will continue until we get the result we all want," Brian said.

"Unfortunately, while yesterday's search of Dublin was fantastic, both in terms of organisation and its support, it has thus far failed to result in any leads.

"However I remain staunchly optimistic of new leads emerging in the in the coming days," he continued.

"At this time, we have no further information than what has already been circulated.

"However... we are determined to continue [our] good work."

Brian said he has "complete confidence" in everybody who is playing a role in the search.

Henry Street garda station is leading the investigation. Any information to it on 061 212 400, or to any Garda station or the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111.
