25-year-old Keiran Hayes who has been missing from his Whitegate home since last week

The family of a man missing from his home at Whitegate in East Clare since last week have appealed for the public’s assistance in tracing him.

25-year-old Kieran Hayes had been staying with his step brother in the Douglas area of Cork City but had planned to return home to Clare on Sunday evening.

His family say they are extremely concerned and have described his disappearance as “out of character”.

Kieran’s aunt Janet told Cork 96 FM’s Opinion Line show that her nephew had a “definite plan” to return home on Sunday 19 April, but had been missing since.

“My mother, Kieran’s grandmother, drove the hour to Ennis and waited and waited at the bus station. Then just before 7pm Kieran’s stepbrother sent a message and said Kieran had arrived back at his house at 6pm, he hadn’t got the bus. He said he was in a very vulnerable state. He said he had cuts and grazes on his face. He was in a fairly bad way and had a bottle of vodka in his hand,” she stated.

Janet, who also spoke on Clare FM today, continued: “Kieran is not a drinker and he never drinks spirits. It is completely out of character. Kieran’s stepbrother was unable to keep him at the house and he insisted he was leaving again to go home to Clare. Whatever happened after he text his grandmother at 1:40pm, we don’t know but something obviously went wrong,” Janet added.

The 25-year-old’s last known location is Cork University Hospital where he was discharged from at 5.20am on Monday April 20th having earlier suffered arm and head injuries after being struck by a van, according to an eyewitnesses who has spoken to the family. There since have been no further sightings of the man.

Kieran moved from Sheffield to Clare three years ago and is described as having a heavy Yorkshire accent.

He is 6ft tall and of slim build with ginger, receding hair. He has a tattoo of a panther on his right shoulder and his name tattooed on his right forearm. When last seen he was wearing a white jumper and light brown trousers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Togher Garda Station on 021 4947120.
