An Irishman missing at Euro 2016 for almost two days has been found safe and well.

Kevin Perry got separated from his friends in Bordeaux late on Friday night.

His cousin Nicola had taken to Facebook to appeal for help locating the missing man from Belfast.

She wrote: “Folks my cousin Kevin has been separated from his friends in Bordeaux from late on Friday night.

“His name is Kevin Perry.”

She issued an appeal to anyone who is in France to help with the search: “If you have friends at the euros can you ask them to keep an eye out and let us know he is safe and well.”

She said his phone is turned off.

A spokeswoman for the temporary Irish consulate in Bordeaux has confirmed that they are providing consular assistance to the family of a missing man.

It was confirmed shortly after 4pm on Sunday that the young man was found 'safe and well'.
