THE PSNI HAS confirmed that the body of a woman which washed up on a beach on the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland is that of Karen Coyles.
The 47-year-old had last been seen on the evening of 11 September in Ballycastle in Antrim. She had returned from Dublin after captaining the winning team in an all-Ireland camogie sevens tournament.
The alarm was raised when she failed to show up for work at the University of Ulster in Coleraine the following morning. Her car was found outside the gates of the camogie club in Ballycastle.
On 16 September police confirmed that their search efforts were focusing entirely on the Antrim coastline.
Her body was discovered at Kintyre on 22 September. Police say they’re not treating her death as suspicious. According to the BBC Ms. Coyles’ relatives have released a statement thanking all involved in the search effort.
