Garda renew appeal over missing Strabane woman

Over a year after the disappearance of Dr Deidre Donnelly O'Flaherty gardai have made a national appeal for information.

The Strabane women's abandoned car was found close to the holiday home she owned in Culdaff.

Dr O'Flaherty, married woman with three children, went missing on the morning of Sunday January 11th 2009.

The married mother of three from Strabane, has a holiday home at Kinnegoe , near Culdaff.

A walker found her BMW on the beach at Kinnegoe, with the keys still in the ignition. Dr O'Flaherty had been on holiday with her family when the car was found.

Despite an extensive search by the Coast Guard and over a hundred volunteers no trace of Dr O’Flaherty was found.

A year on gardai renewed their appeal for information through last night's Crimecall programme on RTE - they want anyone who may now of what happened to Dr O'Flaherty to come forward.
