Search for Galway man missing in Malaysia intensifies.

The Malaysian Police have assigned a team of officers to search for a Galway man missing for nearly a month.

Stephen Warde (31) from Kinvara arrived in Malaysia back in November, and was last seen on December 28.

His rental at Mercu Summer Suites at Jalan Sultan Ismail in Kuala Lumpar was due to expire the next day.

But Mr Warde never checked out from the unit and all of his personal belongings were still there when police searched it.

The Irish Examiner reports that police assigned to the case have also been combing through CCTV footage from around the area where he lived.

The Police Chief of the Dang Wangi district, Assistant Commissioner Shaharuddin Abdullah said that as of now there has been no sign of Stephen.

Speaking at a press conference the chief said has not been any sign that he’s left Malaysia so far.

According to investigations carried out, his passport has not been used to leave the country.

Mr Warde’s mother Mary Morrissey and two of her daughter’s have travelled to Malaysia to help look for him.

In a post to the Missing in Malaysia page on Facebook Mrs Morrissey said “We are extremely worried and concerned for his safety and well-being as this is out of character for Stephen.”

The Department of Foreign Affairs has said that it has been in contact with the family and is offering consular assistance.

Mr Warde is described as being 5′ 11” (180cm) with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

The Malaysian police are urging anyone with information to contact the Dang Wangi district headquarters on +603-26002222, its control centre hotline on +603-26977099, or any station.
