GARDAÍ HAVE RENEWED their appeal for the public’s help in finding a missing 59-year-old woman and released a new image of her.

Christina Lavin has been missing from her home at Kilmainham Bank, Emmet Road, Dublin 8 since 1.30pm on Saturday 16 January.

Gardaí say they are concerned for her welfare. They have also appealed to anyone who was in the Bray area between 3pm and 6pm on the date Christina went missing and who may have seen her to contact them.

It is believed she travelled to the area on the date.

Christina’s older sister, Angela Killelea, told TheJournal.ie that the family is hoping the new images will help jog people’s memories.

She is wearing a hat and a coat in the pictures that she had on that day. Hopefully people will see her like that and remember something about that afternoon.

The family plans to continue their search in Bray tomorrow, handing out fliers and asking people if they can remember anything about that weekend.
