Today will be the last day in the 10 day long search for missing Carrick man David Maguire.

A statement on the social media page of Donegal Mountain Rescue read,

'Another huge crowd descends on Carrick Hall for what will be the last day of the protracted multi-agency effort of the past ten days.

'Local Garda Sergeant Tony Arnold told the crowd that perhaps next weekend, weather permitting, a formal search might recommence, but today was the “last big push” and that “it was a privilege to work in such a community”. So say all of us...

'So, for all out today; let them be in your thoughts and prayers for success in the location of Mr. Maguire and closure for his grieving family.'

Mr. Maguire was last seen at around 4.30am on New Years Day. When last seen he was wearing light blue jeans and a white hoodie with a dark jacket on top.

Since his disappearance there has been a huge effort on behalf of the Donegal Mountain Rescue, Coast Guard, Gardaí, and locals to locate him, unfortunately, thus far, the searches have had no positive outcome.

Throughout the duration of the ten day searches a huge sense of community spirit and determination was noted.
