This morning PSNI officers carried out a road-stop operation in the Garryduff Road, where they handed out leaflets.

A number of reported sightings are also being followed up.

Detective Inspector Alan Pyper said: “The purpose of this morning’s operation was to revisit an area where Mr Galbraith had been seen and to speak to motorists who may have been on the road at that time.

 “We are grateful to all those who have reported possible sightings to us.

“Our operation to find Mr Galbraith continues.  Extensive searches have taken place, involve police resources and a community search and rescue team.

“The area we have been looking at is Ballymoney, Coleraine and Castlerock area, where Mr Galbraith formerly lived.

“I would urge people in these areas to check any outbuildings or sheds in case Mr Galbraith sought shelter in them.

“Anyone who believes that they may have seen Mr Galbraith is asked to please contact local police on the 101 number, quoting the reference number 1123 of 1 August.”
