A number of local sub aqua clubs from across the Shannonside region are assisting in the search for a man in Connemara.
Stephen Cunningham was last seen in the Maam cross area in November and searches have been ongoing for the last number of months.
Searches of a lake began earlier this month and members from the Roscommon Sub Aqua, Lough Ree Sub Aqua Club, and County Longford Scuba Divers assisted searches earlier this week.
Unfortunately the search was unsuccessful but the units are understood to be on standby to assist efforts to find Mr Cunningham in the coming weeks.
It's understood that his shoes and socks were discovered near a small forested area last Sunday and searches of a marshy bogland will begin over this weekend.
