The search for missing Dubliner Cian McLaughlin continues one month after the 27-year-old’s disappearance in a US national park.

Rescue teams at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming have this week released an updated handout on the Irishman’s belongings and appearance in an effort to locate him.

Mr McLaughlin was last seen in the Jackson, Wyoming park on June 8, approximately 800 metres from the Lupine Meadows Trailhead in Grand Teton National Park.

The search for the missing Dublin man has continued on a smaller scale in recent weeks, with Grand Teton park this week revealing an updated handout on Cian’s belongings.

These include a red Apple watch, a red iPhone 12 Mini, a white short sleeve t-shirt, and wire-rimmed sunglasses, while he is also believed to have been wearing at the time of his disappearance.

A statement from the national park said: “No new information has been reported about missing 27-year-old hiker Cian McLaughlin. The park continues to request any information the public may have that may aid in locating McLaughlin.

“He was last seen in the late afternoon/early evening on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, on the south side of the Bradley/Taggart Moraine, headed south towards Taggart Lake. Anyone with information regarding McLaughlin’s whereabouts is urged to contact the National Park Service Investigative Services Branch.”

The massive search involved 50 park staffers, helicopters, six dog teams, drones and infrared technology to comb the 310,000-acre park.
