The friends and family of missing Dean McIlwaine from Newtownabbey have organised another public search.

They want experienced hill walkers to meet at Cavehill Country Park at midday tomorrow (Saturday 22nd June).

It's more than a week since the 22-year-old was last seen.

Paul McCusker one of the coordinators told us: "I would encourage anyone who is available to please get involved.  It was heartbreaking to watch Deans parents yesterday as they made that emotional plea to everyone to help return their son.  Deans family,  friends and girlfriend are devastated and everyone is praying that this popular man returns home soon.

Adding, "On Saturday we will have a number of teams to cover this popular park and would ask any experienced hill walkers to give assistance. Please wear appropriate foot wear and clothing, volunteers will be on hand to support those taking part in the search."
