Gardaí launch new search into missing women

Detectives investigating the disappearance of Deirdre Jacob are searching a new area following reports of “unusual activity” in woodland the evening she went missing.

A fresh search of an isolated part of Co Kildare is under way as part of the investigation into the murders of Ms Jacob and JoJo Dollard.

Inspector John Fitzgerald, who is leading the search operation, said a review of the evidence identified the woodland as “an area of interest”, which may be relevant to the inquiry.

Investigators are searching almost three acres of land, which is expected to take up to three weeks.
