Samuel Wilson disappeared from Dromore in Northern Ireland on 18 October 1966. He crashed his car and after asking for help, disappeared.
At the time there was some debate as to whether he had lost his memory and, washing in the sea nearby, fell in and drowned.
However, in 1975 he was seen in Toronto, Canada, greeted the person who recognised him, and then walked away. More recently still, he was seen in Melbourne, Australia.
If you have information that may assist police to locate Samuel please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
