Gar­daí lo­cate miss­ing Tralee man

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS - By SI­MON BROUDER

A TRALEE man who had been miss­ing for over four months has been lo­cated.

John Burke (21) from Tralee was re­ported miss­ing in mid June and a na­tion­wide ap­peal was made seek­ing the pub­lic’s help in trac­ing him.

The young man had last been seen in Cork in mid June and though he was un­der­stood to have re­mained in the city, a wide­spread search failed to find any trace of him save for in­for­ma­tion that, on an un­known date, he had tried to ac­cess a home­less shel­ter in the city.

Last month his fam­ily re­newed their ap­peal for help in find­ing Mr Burke.

This ap­peal led to a sig­nif­i­cant break­through in the search when a woman who had as­sisted him in deal­ing with a wel­fare re­lated is­sue and who had heard the fam­ily’s ap­peal con­tacted Gar­daí.

In Oc­to­ber – on foot of this new in­for­ma­tion – Gar­daí were able to make con­tact with Mr Burke who is re­ported to be safe and well.

Mr Burke’s fam­ily have thanked the pub­lic for their help in the four-month search for the Tralee man.
