Divers to continue search for missing Dutchman

Divers from the Naval Service and the Gardaí will today carry out searches off Sheep's Head peninsula in West Cork for the body of a Dutchman missing in the area for over a week.

31-year-old Roland Deckers went missing with his friend, Othman Rahmouni, after they went out for a walk on Saturday February 8 from a holiday home on the Sheep's Head Peninsula owned by Mr Decker's family.

A search was launched when they failed to make contact with relatives in the Netherlands that weekend, and the body of 33-year-old Othman Rahmouni was recovered from the sea on Monday February 10.

A series of dives were carried out yesterday in poor conditions.

Gardaí and the Naval service will resume their underwater search later today.
