Police searching for two men following man's sudden death in Belfast

Police are appealing for help in locating two men following the sudden death of a man in Belfast in February.

Brendan McKernan (31) died in hospital on February 23 following a collapse five days earlier.

Detectives investigating the circumstances surrounding the death are making a specific appeal to two individuals they believe may be able to assist them.

They are also trying to locate a phone belonging to Brendan, which his family say have precious photographs, that they want returned.

At this stage Brendan's death is not being treated as suspicious.

Detective Inspector McCambridge said: "We know Brendan was in the company of two men at a fast food restaurant on Donegall Place at around 6.15pm on 18 February. We are keen to identify and locate these males.

"At this time Brendan’s death is not being treated as suspicious and we are seeking to speak with the two individuals as we work to establish the circumstances leading up to his death.

"We are also keen to locate a phone known to have been in the possession of the deceased but which was not found with him. The Nokia touchscreen device may contain evidence valuable to police but also contains precious photographs that the family wish to have returned.

"Detectives can be contacted at Musgrave Reactive and Organised Crime by calling 101."
