Interpol now involved in search for missing Icelander in Dublin

Interpol have now issued a yellow notice for missing person Jón Þröstur Jónsson who disappeared in Dublin, Ireland on February 9th. His case has gained much attention in Iceland and in Ireland where his family have been relentlessly searching for him.

Speaking to newspaper Fréttablaðið, his brother Davíð Karl says that it was an important step to get Interpol involved. "We have no idea where he is so all we can do is hang in there, put up posters and try to do something."

Jón Þröstur was last seen in the Whitehall district of Dublin at just past eleven AM at noon, February 9th. He had arrived in the city the evening before his disappearance. He had planned to attend a poker match on the following Wednesday.
