Police have released CCTV footage of missing Newtownabbey man Dean McIlwaine.

The 22-year-old was last seen in the Carnmoney Road area shortly before 1pm on Thursday of last week July 13.

He is described as being 5ft 8inches in height, of medium build with blue eyes, dark hair and a beard.

He also has sleeve tattoos on both arms.

Detective Inspector Chris Millar said: “It has now been established that Dean was wearing a short sleeve maroon shirt, denim knee length shorts and dark coloured canvas shoes. He was wearing a gold watch on his right wrist.

“Police continue to conduct searches in the local area and we would appeal to Dean, or anyone who has seen him or knows his whereabouts, to make contact with police by calling 101, quoting reference number 121 of 14/7/17."

Police issued the CCTV images from a sighting of Dean earlier in the day on Thursday July 13 wearing the same clothing.

Family and friends of the missing man gathered at Belfast City Hall on Monday night to help search for him.

The distraught family of the young man issued a plea for him to "come back home" to his loved ones.
