M

Police are appealing for information to establish the whereabouts of 55-year-old Thomas McCabe, who is currently unlawfully at large.

Detective Constable Julie McVeagh said: “McCabe, who was sentenced to life for murder, was released from prison on licence, however following a number of breaches his licence was revoked in January 2018. Since then we have conducted a number of detailed enquiries to establish McCabe’s whereabouts but unfortunately at this time he remains at large.

“He is described as around 5′ 8″ tall, of medium build with short grey coloured hair. We believe he has connections to Newry, Newtownabbey and Dublin.

“I would also appeal directly to Thomas to hand himself in.
