SKELETAL REMAINS found in Dublin are confirmed to be that of a man who went missing almost 10 years ago, according to gardai.
They were discovered in Rathmines on April 9, 2020 after which a thorough DNA analysis took place.
Following the results of the tests, it was confirmed that the remains were that of Stephen Corrigan, a former resident of Dublin 8.
Corrigan was reported missing as far back as November 2011 and appeals to locate him were made in May 2012, January 2013 and May 2014.
Gardai are now hoping to get in touch with any living relatives of Stephen's.
"Stephen has been identified through DNA analysis compared with a familial DNA sample provided by his mother. Sadly, Stephen’s mother is now deceased, as is his only other known blood relative," a Garda spokesperson said.
An Garda Siochana continue to try and identify surviving members of Stephen’s family and are appealing to any living relative of Stephen Corrigan or any member of the public who knew Stephen to contact Gardaí at Rathmines Garda Station on 01 666 6700, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
