The car found in the River Bann at the weekend

A rusting car recovered from the River Bann on Saturday may hold answers to a 30 year old mystery.

Tobermore man James Patterson (54) vanished without trace on October 6, 1991.

Mr Patterson - who worked for the old DoE Roads Service and lived alone outside the small Co Londonderry village - was last seen visiting the Mid-Ulster Hospital in Magherafelt, where it is believed his sister was a patient.
