The heartbroken sister of a man knocked down and killed in a hit-and-run in Co Tyrone has made an emotional appeal for information.

Edmundas Cizauskas (46), who was originally from Lithuania, died after being struck by a car Killyman Road in Dungannon on January 30, 2018.

The car fled the scene and police have yet to find the driver - more than four months after the tragedy.

His sister, Ligita Lukosiene, said: "My brother was very friendly, good, joyful, honest. He was working.

“My brother was born and grew up in Lithuania. Eight years ago we came to Dungannon.

“Every day we talked to each other on the phone. I miss him so much.

"I had only him here in this country. Please help me find out what happened that night.

“Maybe somebody saw what happened that night. Maybe somebody saw or heard something about what happened. Please contact the police. Help. Thank you so much.”

Mr Cizauskas was a production operative who worked at the Dunbia meat factory.

He had been living in Dungannon for several years after moving from Siauliai in northern Lithuania.

Senior Investigating Officer Inspector John McKenna, said: “I am appealing for the driver of that vehicle or anyone who has any information regarding the driver or the identification of that vehicle to come forward and help police with their enquiries.

"Please come forward and speak to us. Help us to give the family some sort of closure and justice regarding this incident.”

The investigating team can be contacted on 101 with the reference 1263 30/01/2018.
