72 year old John Joyce was attending a 6 day pilgrimage in Fatima, Portugal. The small group he was travelling with arrived in Fatima on Monday 11th July, via flight to Lisbon from Gatwick.
On Friday 14th July the group met for breakfast then went to watch
a video in a small studio about 100 yards from the hotel. John was at breakfast and at the video viewing. The video finished at approximately 10.45am. After this the group went their separate ways. John was last seen walking towards a museum at about 11am.
John is around 5ft 6ins tall and of large build. His hair is crewcut and balding and he is missing a lower denture.
It is believed he was wearing black mid-calf shorts, a T-shirt and black sandals.
UPDATE: 19th July - Family are now asking people to please search verges and roadsides, assuming John may be injured.
