41-year-old Jon Jonsson, a father of two small children, arrived in Dublin days earlier with his fiance to take part in a poker tournament.

The day Jonsson vanished, CCTV shows him playing poker in the hotel’s casino.

“There are serious concerns for his safety at this stage as he has been missing for over two weeks,” said Insp Mick Mulligan of Ballymun Garda station which is conducting the missing persons investigation.

“We’ve nothing to indicate anything sinister may have happened to him,” Insp Mulligan added.

“We’re appealing now through the media to the public at large for any information in relation to this disappearance.”

Jonson's family posted on their Facebook page how relieved they were to have the Civil Defence involved in the search.

‘This is a great milestone for us as we have been striving for this for what seems like forever now.

‘This is a great group of people that are fantastic at what they do and we are so thankful.’

A search was conducted within a 1km radius from where Jon was last seen with no signs of the poker player.

The family considered this as good news: ‘That means that Jon is at least not in that area so we can now move on to other areas without a doubt.’

The family said there were no signs of unusual behaviour prior to his disappearance.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Ballymun Garda Station on 01 6664400, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any garda station.
