The family of a missing man are attempting to trace a bank card in a bid to find the 40-year-old.

Two weeks ago, Damien Houlihan (40) left Ireland with some cash and bank cards, but without his mobile phone.

The Limerick man has now been missing in the UK for over two weeks.

His family are appealing for information as to his whereabouts as they are growing deeply concerned for his wellbeing.

They were able to track his bank laser card to a purchase of a train ticket on the Southern Railway to Brighton at 7.15am last Friday morning.

Since then, they have had no trace of their loved one.

“We are extremely concerned about him. He left his apartment in Cork two weeks ago. We do know that he travelled to London and that last Friday morning he bought a train ticket to Brighton,” his brother Tony told independent.ie.

“He didn’t bring his phone with him.  He had some cash and his bank cards.”

“We have some friends in London and they’re putting up Facebook alerts and tweets for us,” he said.

Damien is described as being around six foot in height and of medium build.

Damien, originally from Adare Co.Limerick, has been working and living in Cork for the last number of years.
