Debris from Daryl Burke’s boat has been discovered by divers searching for the Portadown man.

Daryl was on a fishing trip to Lough Ree in County Westmeath when the boat sank on Thursday, March 20.

The 30-year-old had been visiting the area as part of a group from the Portadown Pikers Angling Club.

Police divers and volunteers have been searching the water and shoreline since the accident.

The boat was located at around 7 o’clock on Monday night, with a marker placed on the exact location.

The search is set to resume this morning (Tuesday) at 9 o’clock.

Richhill man David Warnock died after being rescued.

John Trimble, 60, is recovering from his injuries but returned to the scene last week to aid the search after spending five days in hospital.
