Lord Mayor calls on public to help police with Norman Prentice missing man appeal

Lord Mayor has urged public to get involved in search

Missing man Norman Prentice

Co Armagh man Norman Prentice has been missing for more than two weeks and the Lord Mayor has urged the public right across the Borough to help police in their efforts to locate him.

Lord Mayor Alderman Gareth Wilson is supporting police in their most recent appeal to secure the safe return of the Portadown man.

With the focus of the search area on Bann towpath, Garvaghy Road, Obins Street, Corcrain Road and West Street, the local community are being asked to check their sheds, garages and outbuildings as Norman may be sleeping rough and taken shelter in their property.

Watch: Family of missing Co Armagh man Norman Prentice make emotional video appeal

Fifty-five-year-old Norman is described as being approximately 5’8” tall, of slim build with black hair with a grey streak.

Norman’s distraught family, who are growing increasingly concerned with each passing day, are desperate to know that he is safe and well – and someone out there may be able to provide information about his whereabouts.

Any information, no matter how small, could hold the key to finding Norman.

Extensive enquiries are currently underway but have so far not resulted in his safe return home.

All premises owners in the Portadown area are being asked to not discard any CCTV from January 5 onwards, as the police may come calling in the next few days to try and confirm various sightings as they come in.

If you see anything you think could be relevant, phone 101 immediately. If you hear anything or have any information which could help us find Norman, get in touch straight away. The reference number is 312 of 15/01/18.
