Concerns are growing for the welfare of a Co Down man who boarded a train to Portadown last night but hasn’t been seen since.
Walter Edwards, from Newtownards, went missing last night (Wednesday) around 7.45pm.
Police are this evening appealing for the public’s assistance in locating Mr Edwards, who has not made any contact with his family in that time.
A PSNI spokesperson said: “We do know that he drove to his father’s home in Belfast where he dropped off the car along with the keys then we believe he made his way to Great Victoria Street station where he
boarded a train for Portadown at 8.41pm.
“The train called at Adelaide, Lisburn, Moira, Lurgan and Portadown. We cannot yet establish which stop he got off until we go through the CCTV so at present all are a possibility.
“This is out of character for Mr Edwards and his family are becoming increasingly concerned for his wellbeing.
“As always in these appeals Mr Edwards is in no trouble at all with police and we just need to know he is safe and well.
“If you do see Mr Edwards please call us on 101 and quote serial cc2019041100019
