Disgraceful: “Missing” teens said to be laughing at the public sharing their images on social media

Emergency servies, gardai, the public and indeed The Liberal (in our own way) do our best to help find anyone who goes missing.

If we can ascertain that someone has legitimately gone missing then we post their image, their description, where they were last seen and how to contact the gardai.

Our readers always support such cases and they do their best to help locate anyone who is missing – it must be stressed at this point that 99.90% of “missing” persons are genuinely missing and they really do need our help.

However, a number of social media users have claimed that some teenagers who have gone “missing” over the past couple of weeks have been laughing at the shares and comments they are receiving on social media.

This despicable act wastes valuable garda resource and emergercy service time and effort that could be better used to help locate people who are truly missing.

Everyone is young and stupid at some point, but this sort of behaviour is just plain wrong at any age.

The Liberal can guarantee our readers that we will do our utmost to provide information on people we believe to be truly missing and will continue to ask our readers, along with The Liberal, to do our bit in helping to locate people who really do need our help.
