DNA found on Philip Cairns bag is to examined in the hopes of finding him

DNA found on a 13 year old’s bag 30 year’s ago is to be examined in the hopes of finding him.

Philip Cairns – whose mother is from Kilkenny – hasn’t been seen since he left his home to return to school after lunch in October 1986.

It’s now claimed a convicted sex offender may have been involved in his disappearance.

Eamon – the Captain – Cooke passed away last week and Gardaí are understood to have interviewed him recently after a woman came forward with new information.

Cathal McMahon of Independent.ie says investigating officers will carry out new tests in the coming days.
