A SISTER AND close family friend of Esra Uyrun have returned to Dublin to mark the two year anniversary of her disappearance.

The 38-year-old mother of one has not been seen since leaving her home at Collinstown Grove, Clondalkin at around 7.15am on 23 February 2011.

Uyrun, who is originally from the UK but is of Turkish descent, was meant to go to the local shop to get some milk for her two-year-old son before her husband needed the car to go to work. However, she never returned and the car, a grey Renault Twingo, was later found that day parked in Bray.

Berna Fidan,  Esra’s sister says “it’s like she vanished without a trace”. She has returned to Dublin for the fourteenth time to put up more posters to try and jog people’s memory. Fidan will visit Uyrun’s Clondalkin home, the local shops and Bray to see if anyone remembers anything and to try and raise awareness that her sister is still missing.

“There hasn’t been anything since she disappeared. I feel like we are going around in roundabouts,” said Fidan. “We need closure of some form. I’m not convinced she is dead without a body but then again I  know my sister could not go this quiet for so long.”

Ms Uyrun is described as 5’3” in height, with dark hair and green eyes.  When last seen she was wearing black leggings, white Nike trainers, and a dark top.
