POLICE are renewing their appeal for information in relation to missing person Dean Patton.

The appeal comes a year after the last reported sighting of Dean close to the Eglinton Hotel, Portrush, on the evening of Wednesday, July 25 last year.

Police are appealing for information which will help them locate Dean.

With the summer holiday season in full swing, police would ask that returning visitors to Portrush jog their memories around last year’s trip, and make contact if they have any relevant information.

Dean is described as being around 6ft tall with dark hair and a tanned complexion. He was wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans on the day he was last seen.

Over 100 volunteers assisted police and the Bann Community Search and Rescue team in looking for Dean, who is described as a vulnerable adult.

If anyone can help the inquiry, the etectives in Coleraine can be contacted on 0845 600 8000, or alternatively contact CrimeStoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
