Gardaí have been searching 12 locations south of the border while the PSNI have been searching five locations in the North.
Meanwhile, British police were searching the home in Derbyshire.
Gardaí said the searches were “part of the evidence gathering stage” of the cross-border investigation into Mr Lunney’s ordeal on the 17th September.
Investigators are continuing to appeal to anyone with any information on this “vicious criminal attack or any other criminal activities which have taken place in the Cavan/Fermanagh border area over recent years” to contact them.
They are interested in any information, “no matter how insignificant it appears.”
