The Grealis family are extremely disappointed with the way the Dutch authorities are dealing with the case of Missing Person JP Grealis, subject to their decision to finally commence an investigation in late October 2011. JP went missing in the town of Breda, The Netherlands in Oct 2008 and the Dutch authorities have shown a complete lack of respect throughout this time period.
The family have planned to submit an official letter of complaint to the Dutch Embassy in Dublin on Wednesday 14th March, followed by a peaceful march to Dail Eireann. ( More details will be given on the day once the group has gathered at Dutch Embassy)
Searching for the Missing, a volunteer support organisation will be assisting with the march to Dail Eireann on the day.
All support would be much appreciated, please contact Helen 086 8929303 should you require further information.
We express our sympathy to the family of John Crawford who was missing from Dublin since 17 October 2000. His body was found washed ashore by Uk Police in December 2000 but was only recently identified as John Crawford.
Questions must be asked as to why it took over 11 years to identify him and how many more remain unidentified. One hopes that communication between Irish and British Police will improve so that such a situation can be avoided.
On the 11 February, Aengus (Gussie) Shanahan will be 12 years missing from Limerick City. His disappearance resulted in the setting up of this website 12 years ago.

Appeal for Missing Gerry Daly (Facebook)
TO ALL MEDIA
For Immediate Release
20th January, 2012
Gerard Anthony Daly Missing Person
Cornaveagh, Bailieborough, Co. Cavan, Ireland -- The family and friends of Gerard Daly (43), known to his friends as “Gerry”, are renewing their appeal for information regarding his disappearance.
Gerry, a resident of Bailieborough, Co. Cavan and originally from Tallaght, Co. Dublin has been missing from his home in Bailieborough since Sunday, 26th June, 2011 under undeniably suspicious circumstances.
Gerry, a father of three young children was last seen by his partner on the evening of the 26th of June. At approximately 6:00PM that same evening Gerry’s partner left Bailieborough to return to her own home. That was the last time that anyone has allegedly seen or spoken to Gerry. After having difficulty reaching Gerry, and her increased concern for his safety, Gerry’s partner contacted the Gardaí and reported him missing.
Bailieborough Gardaí along with Irish non-profit organizations Searching for the Missing in Ireland and International, and Irish Search Dogs in collaboration with countless other local, national and international agencies has conducted exhaustive searches for Gerry utilizing every possible resource available to them. Despite land, water and aerial searches for Gerry, scores of face-to-face interviews and repeated national and international appeals for information, there has been little clue as to how or why Gerry Daly disappeared. Gardaí have ruled out the likelihood of suicide and abscondment. Despite the countless man-hours and resources devoted to finding Gerry Daly, no association with criminal or Para-military activity has been made.
Gerry Daly appears to have vanished into thin air, despite his physical stature and strength. Both the Gardaí and the Daly family believe that one or more persons known personally to, and trusted by Gerry is withholding critical information related to his disappearance.
Gerry is a carpenter and builder by trade but his true passion lies with his breeding and training of German Shepherd dogs. Gerry is well connected throughout the dog-breeding community and has participated in, and received awards for showing his dogs. He is also an experienced sub-aqua scuba diver and belongs to local dive clubs.
When last seen Gerry was wearing a blue polo top with yellow strips, black work boots, a G-shock watch. He is believed to have been wearing a gold chain with a Celtic cross on it at the time of his disappearance. Gerry has multiple tattoos on his arms, including a scorpion, an Irish flag and a stick figure drawing. Gerry was carrying a black and red Nokia mobile phone at the time he disappeared.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Garda confidential line on 1 800 666 111 OR Searching for the Missing in Ireland and International Confidential line on +353-85-2092119
The family of missing Esra Uyrun have issued a new appeal for her. Esra Uyrun will be one year missing on the 23 February. If you have any information on her disappearance please come forward.

It is a disgrace that Charities, who spend much time fundraising, have to pay 23% Vat on essential equipment. Taking 23% away from these charities puts them at great risk of going bankrupt.
If these charities go bankrupt who will provide the services they provide ? If this happens one of two things will happen to Charity services:
1. the government will have to either provide replacement services at a greater cost to the tax payer or
2. they will let their people go and these much needed services will cease
We highlighted this problem before on this web site and Politicians who were in power at the time asked ‘what business has a missing persons organisation querying VAT ?’
Let me answer those people and all other government members now with this example;
One such charity and voluntary group is “Mallow Search and Rescue" who have been assisting the Missing Persons Association for the past ten years in searching and recovering missing persons from Irish waters. They have had to pay the Government in the region of 100,000 euro in VAT out of their funds since they began to work with us. If we did not have such a voluntary group to help us, the bill to the tax payer would be in excess of two million euro for the past ten years. Mallow Search and Rescue have been searching for Missing Persons lost in Irish waters in a number of Counties almost on a daily basis since the start of November 2010 and they are now struggling to meet the fuel costs that have been incurred from these searches. The VAT they have been charged in the past ten years would be a great help to them now to continue the good work they do and save the State and tax payers the costs that would be incurred if they and other charities did not exist.
By refunding the money the State has taken from them and by giving them VAT exemption it will save the tax payers vast amounts of money each year. Taking Vat from Charities is ultimately putting the State deeper into debt. Please give these Charities Vat exemption so that they can survive these difficult times.
