Arrest warrant issued for ‘missing man’ Martyn Price

Price was subject of a missing persons appeal over the weekend

An arrest warrant has been issued for a man who police believe may have travelled to Newry.

Over the weekend police issued a missing persons appeal for 35-year-old Martyn Price.

The Belfast man was last seen at a health care facility in the Saintfield Road area of the city at around 8.20pm on Saturday night, October 28.

Detective Chief Inspector David Henderson described him as “a very vulnerable individual” and advised members of the public not approach him but instead contact police right away.

Price was made the subject of a Probation Order in January for making threats to kill.

Belfast Crown Court today heard how the threats in this case were of the “utmost seriousness”.

Defence counsel suggested the best option would be for his client to return to the health care facility, when located, given his mental health issues.

The judge issued an arrest warrant for Price.
