The search for missing Lifford man David Colhoun is now in its third week, with a Police Service of Northern Ireland spokesperson saying yesterday that the search was continuing.
Mr. Colhoun, age 22, of Beechwood Avenue, Lifford, was last seen in the early hours of Sunday, May 22, after he escaped from PSNI custody. He had been arrested for what police described as minor offences.
The search last week focused on a section of the River Mourne, on the Lifford side of the Strabane bridge. Divers searched there Tuesday and Wednesday but did not locate Mr. Colhoun.
Hundreds of local people have joined the search, which has included the rivers and their banks from Magheramason to St. Johnston and Carrigart.
It is understood that CCTV footage showed Mr. Colhoun heading toward the Mourne, but did not show him enter the river. However, his family said if he were alive, he would have contacted them.
