I hope he is found. My Son used to be friends with him and his brother, they came to the house sometimes and were such lovely boys. It is very sad and worrying. I pray for the family he is found safe.

Sarah doyle

To my brother dearest Matthew please come home my heart is breaking for all our fall outs and issues I adore every bone of you so please please come home and know I love you to the moon and back always and forever x

I hope so very much that Matthew is safe. The lockdown is hard on some people and has been responsible for an increase in poor mental health. It’s difficult for some to ignore their thoughts/anxieties and depression when they feel so isolated. If you can, please let someone know you are ok

Margo

Kelly

Hope you are safe and well having a good time somewhere mucka x
