The search for David Maguire (38) is set to continue this weekend despite the inclement weather conditions.

David was last seen on New Year's Day at approximately 4.30am. When last seen he wearing light blue jeans and a white hoodie with a dark jacket on top.

The Carrick man has been missing for over a week but there remains a strong sense of determination in the minds of everyone involved in the search.

Donegal Mountain Rescue have been working alongside the Coast Guard and Gardaí to coordinate this weekend's search with a strong emphasis placed on the safety of searchers as Donegal is battered by gales.

Those who wish to take part in the search should report to the community hall in Carrick, today and tomorrow. In the interest of safety, all high ground, coastal areas, and rivers are being allocated to Mountain Rescue and the Coast Guard with 9 distinct sections already defined and assigned. All other areas will be allocated by the Gardaí to local searchers.

Searchers are advised to inform a family member or friend if they are taking part in the search and to wear appropriate attire. It is inadvisable for anyone under eighteen to take part and Donegal Mountain Rescue have urged discretion due to both the weather conditions and possibly traumatic situations arising from recovery.

Once again, Donegal Mountain Rescue have appealed for the cooperation of the public and they continue searching in the hope of bringing closure to this sad event for the Maguire family.
