Throughout the world on August 30, the Day of the Disappeared, families remember those missing and disappeared.
Sixteen people were abducted and murdered, mostly by the IRA, during the Troubles. Nine bodies have so far been recovered, but seven families are still hopeful that remains of their loved ones will be found.
Speaking at the Lyric Theatre on Thursday, the actor recalled the pain of his mother's recent death
"I know where she's buried. Although it's fairly raw, it's of enormous comfort to me that I can always go and see her," explained the WAVE patron
"But for these families they have had a lifetime of not being able to bury their loved ones and have somewhere to go where they can have private moments with them."
Seven white chairs were on display to represent the empty seats at kitchen tables across Northern Ireland.
Seamus Ruddy disappeared in France in May 1985, and despite extensive searches in Rouen, the Newry teacher has never been found.
The years go by but they go painfully by. Every single day I waken up and I think about Seamus. I try not to think about the way that he died but I do think about him as a person. He was my brother.
His sister Anne Morgan said the time without him has been very difficult for the family.
"There are men who have the knowledge about our Seamus and who are not willing to come forward and let us know," she said.
In 1999 the British and Irish governments set up an independent commission to help locate the bodies.
The most recent dig for Seamus's remains took place in 2008 and Ann is confident that any information would lead to further searches.
