Latest: Emotional appeal for missing 33-year-old to return home

Update 7.33pm: The family of missing man Michael Cullen has made an emotional appeal for his return.

He's been reported missing from his home in the North Circular Road area of Belfast.

The 33-year-old was last in touch with his family last Tuesday, at around 2 o'clock in the afternoon.

          

It's thought he could be in the Dublin area.

Michael is five-foot-nine with dark hair and also has a beard.

When last seen he was wearing a green jacket, dark-coloured trousers and Nike-type shoes.

His sister, Cathy, has this message for her brother: “Please come home. I want you to know we all love you very much. All your family and friends are thinking of you.

“If you’re not ready to come home, that’s OK, but if you could just let us know that you’re OK or let the police know that you’re OK.”
