The mother of 41-year-old Icelandic poker player Jon Jonsson, Hanna Bjork Thrastardottir, told Virgin Media News: "It's the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life.

"I could never imagine anything worse than not knowing where your child is, it's the worst thing.

"We are checking all possibilities, when you have no idea where he is anything can happen.

"So we just take it from there, the only thing is we have to do is find him, and we take it from there."

The father of two went missing in Dublin near his hotel room on February 9.

Jonsson arrived the day before with his fiance to take part in a poker tournament.  He was last seen playing poker in a nearby casino but was noticably absent from the tournament he came to Ireland specifically to play in.

He left the Bonnington Hotel at 11:05am and was caught on CCTV at McGettigan’s bar two minutes later, exiting onto the Swords Road heading northbound past Highfield Hospital.  There has been no trace of Jonson since.

Ireland's Civil Defence has since gotten involved.

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.
