Missing Person - John Redmond

On the 21 February 2022 John Redmond (33 years) was reported missing by his father to Gardaí at Howth Garda Station. John’s father reported him missing after receiving a phone call from a concerned member of the public who, while out walking on the Cliff Walk near the Martello Tower, Sutton, discovered John’s backpack with a jacket, mobile phone and personal items beside a small sandy cove near Drumlech point. 

Gardaí believe that John left his home at Drimnagh earlier that morning (circa 8am) stating he was travelling to the city center. Gardaí have established that John travelled by public transport to Sutton, Co Dublin, where later in the morning at Sutton Cross a man matching John’s description is seen on CCTV shortly after 11.20am.   

This man can then be seen leaving the shop alone on foot and walking out of the carpark onto the Howth Road. His direction of travel from here is unknown. It is believed that this male may have also visited a coffee shop at Sutton Cross. 

Extensive coastal searches have been carried out by the Coast Guard and the RNLI. Gardaí have carried out enquires with hospitals, canvassed for CCTV, and made a media appeal. Unfortunately John has not been located to date. 

John’s partner, parents and family are very concerned for his welfare and are seeking the public’s assistance in any way possible, and are encouraging them to call with any piece of information no matter how small.
