Longford relatives concerned as mother of missing man seeks information

The mother of missing Manchester man Curtis Higgins has issued a plea to help find her son.

The 29-year-old, who has relatives in Longford town as well as in Co Mayo, was last seen by his mother Denise Higgins at approximately 11am on Sunday morning last. He is described as being 6’4” in height and has greenish blue eyes and short brown hair.

It has been revealed that Mr Higgins finished work at around 4.45pm on Sunday afternoon, July 31. Just after 9pm, Ms Higgins received a text message from her son, telling her that he was not coming home.

Mr Higgins’ phone has been turned off since sending the text message, but it is understood that his bank card was used to purchase a train ticket to Holyhead and then a ferry ticket from Holyhead to Belfast.

Mr Higgins’ Longford relatives have been sharing his image on social media in the hopes of gaining information on his whereabouts.

It’s believed that Mr Higgins previously expressed a wish to visit his late grandmother’s home in Westport. He also has ties to Northern Ireland.
