Section of park sealed off in search for Icelandic man

A section of a public park in Dublin has been sealed off by gardaí investigating the disappearance of an Icelandic man who went missing in the capital five years ago.

Jon Jonsson left the Bonnington Hotel on Swords Road in Whitehall at around 11am on 9 February 2019.

The 41-year-old was last seen a short time later walking past the entrance to Highfield Hospital and heading in the direction of the Collins Avenue junction.

Gardaí at Ballymun, supported by the water unit and specialist cadaver dogs, are carrying out a search at Santry Demense, which is approximately 3.5km from where Mr Jonsson was last seen.

One of the cadaver dogs reacted in a manner that has led gardaí to believe the area required a more thorough examination.

It has now been cordoned off with tape as a potential crime scene.

The Garda Technical Bureau has been called in to conduct a full forensic examination of the area. That is expected to commence tomorrow.

The search, which involves searching areas including a lake, island and woodlands in the park, was started following information received by gardaí in two anonymous letters.

It is understood the information is vague and the investigation team has appealed to the author, or authors, of the correspondences to make direct contact with them.

Mr Jonsson had been in Ireland with his fiancée to attend a poker tournament and for a holiday.

He is described as being 1.82m (6ft) tall, of medium build, with short brown hair.

His brother and sister travelled to Dublin last week to join gardaí in making a fresh appeal for information.
