LATEST: Lough Ree search now in its 13th day

The search on Lough Ree for missing Portadown angler Daryl Burke is now in its 13th day.


Naval and garda divers are joined today by local volunteers and the RNLI boat to comb the Ballybay/Carna area, where the boat debris was discovered on Monday evening. After examination by specialists the boat was taken from the water yesterday.


Lifeboat Operations Manager with the RNLI, Damien Delaney, said today’s search will predominantly radiate out from where the boat was found.
In addition, there will be some shore searches and there are boats in the area using sonar or side scanning equipment to aid the operation.


“It’s very difficult on the people involved, everyone is hoping it’s the last day and that he is found for the family,” Mr Delaney concluded.
