New CCTV footage in search for missing man

New CCTV footage has been released by police searching for a man who has been missing for almost two months.

Jack O'Sullivan, 24, was last seen in the Hotwells area of Bristol on 2 March after leaving a party.

The latest confirmed sighting of him is at 03:13 GMT when he walked onto a grassy area near Brunel Lock Way.

New footage shows a possible sighting of someone walking over Plimsol Bridge at about 03:25, followed by someone walking along Bennett Way at about 03:38.

Since Mr O'Sullivan went missing, extensive searches have been carried out.

A search party organised by volunteers also took place last Wednesday.

His mother Catherine O'Sullivan previously said: "We just need to know where he's gone, for our sanity."

According to Avon and Somerset Police, Mr O'Sullivan tried to call a friend who was still at the party at 03:24.

When the friend called back 10 minutes later, Mr O'Sullivan answered, only managing to say "hello" before the call cut off.

However, his phone remained active on the Find My Friends app until 06:44.

Senior Investigating Officer Det Insp Jason Chidgey said: "This has been an incredibly difficult time for Jack O'Sullivan's family as we approach two months since he was last seen."

He said a dedicated team of officers had carried out extensive land and river searches, trawled CCTV footage and carried out other inquiries.

Support has been given by a number of specialist units, including the dog and mounted section, specialist dive teams who used sonar technology, the National Police Air Service and a specialist review team.

Det Insp Chidgey said: "Our officers have reviewed footage from 31 different sources, including private and local authority CCTV, dashcam and doorbell cameras.

"To ensure we’ve been as comprehensive in our approach as possible, we’ve recently carried out a re-review of more than 100 hours of CCTV."

Mr O'Sullivan is described as white, about 5ft 10ins (178cm) tall, of slim build and with short, brown hair.

He was last seen wearing a quilted green/brown Barbour jacket over a beige woollen jumper, navy chinos and brown leather trainers with white soles.
