Gardai in Milford have commenced a search and excavation in the Milford District.
The search forms part of a search for missing Deirdre O’Flaherty from Ballymagarry, Strabane, Co. Tyrone.
She was reported missing on the 11th January 2009 at Moville.
Dr. O’Flaherty’s silver BMW SUV was discovered with the keys still in the ignition near Kinnego Bay, Inishowen.
Gardai are liaising closely with the relevant family and a Garda family liaison officer has been appointed.
The search will be carried out by members of the Donegal Divisional Search Team and Garda Technical Bureau along with private contractors and is expected to last up to 5 days.
Our sister site Donegal Daily says it understands the latest search follows information given to Garda Headquarters in Dublin from a psychic.
