New development in case of missing Trevor Deely
Trevor went missing after attending a Christmas party on 8 December 2000.

THERE HAS BEEN a major breakthrough in the case of Trevor Deely, who went missing over 16 years ago.

Trevor went missing after attending a Christmas party on 8 December 2000, and was last spotted on CCTV footage which showed him crossing Baggot Street Bridge and walking towards Haddington Road in the city centre.

A cold-case review was begun by gardaí in December, which included swathes of evidence being gathered and witnesses re-interviewed.

RTÉ reports that this review has led to forensically enhanced VHS footage taken from outside Trevor’s office at Bank of Ireland Asset Management on Leeson Street shows him meeting a man.

Trevor arrives just before 3.30am, speaks briefly to the man and goes into his office for a cup of tea with a colleague. The man, who has never come forward, is seen waiting for a short time before crossing the road.

Trevor leaves the office around 4am, when someone – possibly the same man – follows him. He was last seen at 4.14am walking under an umbrella. He spoke by phone with a friend, telling them what a good night he had.

He has not been seen since.
