Irish embassy assist in search for Cork man missing in Thailand

The Irish Embassy in Thailand is providing consular assistance following the disappearance of a Cork man in Bangkok last week.

54-year-old Anthony O'Sullivan from Mitchelstown has been missing for four days.

It's understood that a member of Mr. O'Sullivan's family has travelled to the Thai capital to help coordinate the search effort.

A spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs said that they were aware of Mr O’Sullivan’s disappearance and were providing consular assistance to his family in Bangkok.

Anthony is described as a very experienced traveller having visited both the Himalayas and Cambodia in recent years.

According to The Irish Times, one local who spoke characterised Anthony as “a very decent fellow and popular too.”

“Anthony has travelled widely – he would save up and head off for a few weeks and then come back to Mitchelstown where he is well known.”
