Aengus Shanahan - missing from Limerick since 11/2/00 - 12th anniversary

Aengus Shanahan has been missing from Limerick since 11th February 2000 and the 12th anniversary of his disappearance will fall on Saturday 11th February 2012.

Aengus, better known as ‘Gussie’ is the youngest in a family of four and lived with his parents Bob and Nancy at Ashrook, Ennis road, Limerick.  He was an employee of Dell, Castletroy, Limerick and finished work on Friday afternoon, the 11th February 2000.  Family or friends had not seen or heard from him over that weekend and concern grew regarding his whereabouts.  When he did not return to work on Monday the 14th February 2000 his family reported him as a missing person to An Garda Siochana.

Gussie went to Coopers bar in St Joseph Street, Limerick with friends on that Friday afternoon.  He was due to stay that night with friends in St Joseph Street but did not do so.  It has been established that he left the bar on his own at 10.30pm and walked from there onto Old School House lane, which connects with Barrington Street.  That is the last sighting of Gussie.

Description: Height – 5ft 10ins, Build – thin, Weight – 10 stone, Complexion – pale, Hair– fair hair cut short.

At this stage Gardaí would be hopeful that people who may have  useful information and who have not contacted us in the past would do so now.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Roxboro Road Garda Station on 061 214340.

A photograph (CCTV Stills) of Aengus is available on request via email from the Garda Press Office.
