Police officers and members of a community search team are continuing efforts today to locate a Ballymoney man who has been missing since Friday night.
Norman Galbraith left his home at Queen’s Avenue at about 10pm to go to a local shop, but did not return.
Detective Inspector Conor McStravick said police are now following up reports of sightings.
“We are exploring the possibility that Mr Galbraith set off to walk to his childhood home in Castlerock, a journey he has made before.
“Last night his wallet was found by a man walking a dog at Garryduff Road/Queen’s Park near Dunloy, and we have also had a report from a woman who knows him and believes she saw him in Coleraine on Saturday morning. Both of these are consistent with him being on a route to Castlerock.
“We are grateful to those who have contacted us to date. We are also asking landowners between Ballymoney and Castlerock to check sheds and outfarms in case Mr Galbraith sought shelter from the poor weather.
“If you can help, please call the police 101 number and mention the reference 1123 of August 1 2015.”
