WICKLOW DIVERS JOIN THE SEARCH FOR LIFFORD MAN AS SEARCH ENTERS ITS NINTH DAY

first_imgA team of volunteer divers from Wicklow will today join the search for missing Lifford man David Colhoun.The search for the tragic 22 year old has now entered its second week since he went missing in the early hours of Sunday week last.His distraught family including dad Joseph, three brothers and one sister have been waiting at the banks of the Rivers Finn, Foyle and Mourne for the past seven days waiting for a sign that David has been recovered. Hundreds have joined the search for the young man from Beechwood Grove who was last seen after escaping police custody after being arrested for being drunk and disorderly.To date the water has been very murky which has prevented many divers, including the PSNI team, from diving.However it is hoped that as it clears a thorough search of the waterway can be undertaken.Last night a source close to the family say they are hopeful that when the water on the rivers subsides, there will be more chance of finding David. “They just want him home now. Each passing day is agony for them. They know he’s not alive but they just want their son and brother back.“People have been very good and everyone is just wishing now that David will be found soon,” he said.EndsWICKLOW DIVERS JOIN THE SEARCH FOR LIFFORD MAN AS SEARCH ENTERS ITS NINTH DAY was last modified: May 31st, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:David Colhounlast_img
