Gardaí from the Tramore District responded to a call about a man who went missing while walking in Portlaw woods yesterday.
Four friends were out walking in the woods when one became separated from the group. Concerned for the individual, who is not from the area, the men called the Gardaí. Upon arrival at the location, Gardaí carried out an extensive search.
Thankfully, the individual was found an hour later in good health. It is believed the man had stopped to look at something, got confused and ended up walking in a different direction to his friends.
Rumours that circulated locally of human remains being found in Portlaw Woods were unfounded and incorrect, Gardaí confirmed.
