Patrick Connelly was last seen getting onto a steamer at Greenock for Sligo, Ireland.

On the night he disappeared the son of his landlady where he had been staying in Glasgow woke up after having a dream that he had been forced by two men into a tank and that they would never see him again.

The following night the boy saw the ghost of Patrick Connelly at the window when he drew the blind.

He had been going to see relatives in Sligo.

His things were returned from Sligo uncollected.
