WATCH: Missing Dublin teenager Dylan Keogh is the focus of Monday night's Crimecall

Dylan Keogh has been missing since early January.

Monday's (25 February) edition of Crimecall on RTÉ One will take a look at the disappearance of Dublin teenager Dylan Keogh, as his family continues to appeal for information.

The 18-year-old left his home on Thursday 10 January at 6.45pm.

Keogh was seen later that night at 10.30pm doing Tai Chi-type moves close to the slipway in Clontarf.

Concern for his whereabouts grew the following day and his parents subsequently contacted An Garda Síochána.

Two days later, with no sign of Keogh emerging, his parents returned to the Gardaí who officially reported him missing.

Describing Dylan's character, his uncle Darren Keogh paints a picture of a "very gentle, quiet guy", one who is "happy in his own space."

On Crimecall, Darren describes the last day that Dylan's parents saw their son:

“He said he was going to set out for a couple of days, maybe a week and said, ‘Don’t stress, Mam, don’t stress.’ As the days went on, though, the worry escalated.”

He then describes how Dylan’s parents Laura and Anthony Keogh have been since they reported their only son missing.

“Dylan’s Mam and Dad aren’t coping. Nothing I can say is going to make them better. The only thing that’s going to make them better is getting Dylan back.”

With no sign of Dylan for over seven weeks, his family are growing increasingly concerned for his safety.

Despite several searches in the Clontarf area by Gardaí and locals over the past few weeks there is still no sign of Dylan.

However, his uncle James says that the family still have hope.

“My hopes are for any sort of information, for people to come forward, to give us any sort of indication where Dylan went and what happened to him.

"At this stage, we’re hoping for his safe return.”

Crimecall is on RTÉ One tonight - Monday 25 February - at 9.35pm
