Appeal for Info on Gussie Shanahan

Date: 2/9/2010
Thursday 11th February 2010 marks the 10th Anniversary of the day Aengus “Gussie” Shanahan aged 20 vanished without a trace off the streets of Limerick.

Gussie, an employee of Dell was last seen at 10.30pm in Joseph Street, Limerick

Gussie’s parents Bob and Nancy, parents to 4 children are still desperate after all this time to learn the fate of their youngest child.

“Nothing but nothing can be as bad as not knowing what happened to my son. I can’t grieve. I can’t move on. My life has been a daily torment for the past 10 years” says Nancy.

Nancy suffered a stress-related stroke eight years ago. Yet despite her physical disability, it is her mental anguish and turmoil that is most painful and distressing to herself and to those around her. “I am sure he’d have rung me if he was alive. I believe he may have come to harm and I wonder did he suffer? Was he tortured? After 10 years of not knowing I am sure I could say “I forgive you” to someone who may have harmed my son. Just please tell me where he is. Tell me what happened to him”.

Bob Shanahan and his family have worked tirelessly distributing posters, conducting searches, visiting homeless shelters throughout Ireland following false sightings of Gussie. Bob says “If anyone can end this nightmare for my family I would be forever grateful”
