Police will be conducting further searches this week as part of efforts to locate Ballymoney man Norman Galbraith who went missing at the end of July, 2015.
Detective Sergeant Kelly Gallagher said: “This has been a very difficult time for the family and friends of Mr Galbraith however I know they are appreciative of the public support over the last 8 months.
“With further searches planned for this week we want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of Norman’s last known movements and what he was wearing. The 66 year old was last seen at his home at Queens Avenue on the evening of Friday 31 July, 2015. He was wearing a navy fleece, navy tracksuit bottoms and black shoes.
“A wallet belonging to Mr Galbraith was found a few days after he went missing on the Burnquarter Road, just outside of Ballymoney. Norman is originally from the Castlerock area and it is possible he was heading in that direction.
“Even 8 months on this appeal might help jog someone’s memory and we will follow up on any piece of information we receive. You can contact us on the non-emergency number 101.
“We are grateful to the Community Rescue Services for the ongoing efforts of their volunteers and we would once again remind landowners in the Ballymoney, Articlave and Coleraine areas to check sheds and outbuildings.”
