Police renew search for Ballymoney man Norman Galbraith who disappeared 8 months ago

By Claire Williamson

Police will be conducting fresh searches this week in a bid to find a missing 66-year-old man who disappeared eight-months ago.

Norman Galbraith was last seen at his Ballymoney home at Queens Avenue on Friday July 31, 2015.

He was wearing a navy fleece, navy tracksuit bottoms and black shoes.

A wallet belonging to Mr Galbraith was found a few days after he went missing on the Burnquarter Road just outside Ballymoney.

Norman is originally from the Castlerock area and it is possible he was heading in that direction.

As the further searches are planned to take place this week, police are keen to remind the public of Norman's last known movements and what he was wearing.

Detective Sergeant Kelly Gallagher said: “This has been a very difficult time for the family and friends of Mr Galbraith however I know they are appreciative of the public support over the last 8 months.

“With further searches planned for this week we want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of Norman’s last known

“Even 8 months on this appeal might help jog someone’s memory and we will follow up on any piece of information we receive. You can contact us on the non-emergency number 101.

“We are grateful to the Community Rescue Services for the ongoing efforts of their volunteers and we would once again remind landowners in the Ballymoney, Articlave and Coleraine areas to check sheds and outbuildings.”
