The man  and his wife, believed to be in their sixties, were  reported missing when they failed to turn up for a departure flight to another country.

The search operation was initiated about 5pm on Tuesday evening, involving a number of Coast Guard units and the Shannon-based rescue helicopter, and it was resumed at first light today (Wednesday).
