Family of missing Tipperary man Stephen Cullinan appeal for son to make contact on tenth day of search

The family of missing Tipperary man Stephen Cullinan have appealed for the 25 year old to make contact following extensive search efforts in Dublin today.

In an appeal Stephen’s father Tim said: "What I'm saying to him is just... if you'd make a phone call... just make a phone call to his mother. She's waiting at home.

"All we want to know as a family is that he's safe. If he wants to stay in Dublin, that's fine... but just make contact."
