The priest who founded the website missing.ie has urged anyone with information about a missing person “not to carry it to the grave” but to “come forward” and help put a stop to families’ pain.

Fr Aquinas Duffy told the Irish Independent he was “absolutely convinced that in many of the cases of missing persons, there are people
who have information and for reasons known only to them, are withholding that information”.
