Child Rescue Alert: Roscommon children found safe and well in Enniskillen

Killian, Elisha and Derbhla Gregg were found at a petrol station in the Fermanagh town.

Updated 8.45am

THE THREE CHILDREN subject to a Child Rescue Ireland Alert (CRI) early this morning have been found safe and well in Enniskillen.

Overnight, investigators in Roscommon sought the public’s assistance to trace the whereabouts of Killian Gregg (8), Elisha Gregg (6), Derbhla Gregg (2) and their 41-year-old mother Fiona.

Fiona Gregg has also been located and the CRI alert cancelled. She was detained under the Mental Health Act.

Gardaí advised that the PSNI discovered the family, acknowledging the cooperation received from the neighbouring force during the investigation.

They also thanked the public and media for their assistance.

This is only the second time a CRI alert has been issued in Ireland. Superintendant David Taylor said the unprecedented move was taken as gardaí had concerns about the risk to the health and welfare of the children. They are only used where a “high benchmark of criteria” has been met.
