Over 226 thousand euro has been raised online for missing Trinity College professor Seamus Lawless.
The 39-year-old hasn’t been seen since he reached the summit of Mount Everest on Thursday.
The family of Seamus Lawless say they have set up a GoFundMe page with a ‘heavy heart’ with a goal of raising 750 thousand euro.
The funds will go towards a team of expert Sherpas in an effort to locate and bring Shay home to Ireland.
His family say they have little to no information about what happened last Thursday and say they do not know his current location.
Seamus from Bray in County Wicklow hasn’t been seen since he reached the summit last week.
The search is currently suspended because of high winds.
