Detective Inspector Conor McStravick said: “Mr Galbraith is originally from the Castlerock area and is known to have walked there previously from his Ballymoney home. He formerly lived at Ballywillan Road, Castlerock.
“We are asking people in the rural area between Ballymoney and Castlerock to check any outbuildings or sheds in case Mr Galbraith sought shelter in them.
“Mr Galbraith does not have access to a vehicle. Our appeal is also to anyone who saw him on foot in Ballymoney or along the north coast at any time since 10pm on Friday, or perhaps offered him a lift, to get in touch with us. Please call the police 101 number and mention the reference 1123 of August 1 2015.”
