A search is underway since yesterday in north Mayo for a missing man.

The man, who's in his late 60's and living in the Lacken area, was last seen at about lunchtime on Thursday.

His car was located yesterday afternoon at Downpatrick Head, and the Coastguard launched an extensive search operation.

The land search has been continuing today, also involving the Civil Defence, Gardai and the Grainne Uaile sub-aqua club.

Weather conditions have hampered plans for a sea search, but Gardai are hoping that can get underway tomorrow.

Gardai say searches have taken place from Ballycastle Pier to Killala, along the entire stretch of coastline, and they're appealing to people to be vigilant when out walking, and if they can assist in tracing the missing man, they're asked to contact Ballina Garda Station at 096 - 20560.
