Gardaí are appealing to the public for information about missing Trevor Deely on the twentieth anniversary of his disappearance.

On December 7, 2000, Mr Deely spent an evening in Dublin city socialising with colleagues at a Christmas function and never came home. While there was a Garda investigation into his disappearance, he has yet to be found.

An Gardaí Síochána are again asking the public for any information - no matter how small - about what happened to him in the early hours of December 8.

A live and active investigation into Mr Deely's whereabouts is being led by officers at Pearse Street Garda Station.

“After spending the night socialising in Dublin City without incident 22-year-old Trevor Deely was last seen on CCTV passing the Bank of Ireland ATM on Haddington Road,” Garda Inspector Katherina Joyce said.

She said that the investigation continues to focus on a man dressed in dark clothing pictured in footage talking to Mr Deely at a gate on Wilton Terrace.

“We believe the same man can later be seen walking a short distance behind Trevor in CCTV footage at the Bank of Ireland ATM on Haddington Road - he has never been identified,” she said.

“This was the last known sighting of Trevor Deely and we believe the man pictured in this CCTV may have vital information that helps us to solve this case.”

She once again asked anyone with information on the unidentified man or Mr Deely to contact the Gardaí, including anybody who “for whatever reason” had not previously done so.

Mr Deely’s sister, Michele, spoke on behalf of the family and said they are desperate to find him.

“It is hard to believe we are now 20 years without him,” she said. “He is the ‘baby’ of our family and we have spent the last two decades doing all we can to find him.”

“The pain of not knowing where Trevor is, is getting more and more difficult to bear. Please help us. All we want to know is, where is Trevor?”

Mr Deely’s father, Michael, also discussed his son’s disappearance in a video for the gardaí.

“It’s very difficult to me the whole mystery surrounding his disappearance and wondering about this, and wondering about that. It’s just you can never get away from it… there’s always something to remind you of Trevor.”

A Crimestoppers reward of €100,000 is still available to anyone who comes forward with information that helps locate Mr Deely or provides significant progress in the case.

Anyone with details of what happened should contact the incident room at Pearse Street Garda Station on 01 6669000, Crimestoppers on 1800 250 025, or any Garda station.
