The search for Rafal Waligora, a man missing from Kildare since October 15, has been stood down following the discovery of a body.

Rafal was last seen in Newbridge two weeks ago and Gardaí had issued numerous missing persons appeals to trace the 42-year-old.

The Gardaí were asked to help find Rafal when his family raised concerns for his wellbeing a fortnight ago.

Rafal had been described as being 5 foot 9 in height with brown eyes and grey hair often tied into a ponytail.

Today, Gardaí delivered the news that the search for Rafal has sadly been stood down.

“Following the discovery of a body in County Kildare, the missing person appeal for Rafal Waligora has been stood down,” a Garda spokesperson said today.

“An Garda Síochána would like to thank the public and media for their assistance in this matter.”
