Heartfelt appeal launched to trace Offaly man missing in Spain
A social media campaign has been launched to help trace the whereabouts of Tullamore man Jason Gavin who is missing in Spain.
The 24-year-old father of one had travelled to Salou, close to Barcelona, for a few days but did not board a flight home, and an appeal has now been launched to find him.
Jason, known by his friends as Jay, was last seen in the popular holiday resort on Saturday evening, May 26, the same evening as the Champions League final.
Taking to social media, friend Shannon Christina McGuinness, wrote: "I can't believe I'm posting this but if anyone has seen or heard from Jason (Gavin) since Saturday can they please contact myself, a member of his family or the guards."
"We are all very worried," she told the Offaly Express, and Shannon appealed for anyone who can help locate Jason to contact his family or gardaí.
The Offaly Express has contacted the Department of Foreign Affairs and Spanish Authorities in relation to Jason's situation.
