PSNI following definite line of inquiry in search for missing camogie captain

Forty-seven year old Karen Coyles was last seen in Ballycastle on Sunday evening. Dive teams are now taking part in the search.

THE SEARCH FOR missing Antrim woman Karen Coyles is continuing with police confirming that their efforts are now focused entirely on the coastline around Ballycastle.

She was last seen on Sunday evening after returning from Dublin, where she had captained her camogie team to an All-Ireland Sevens title.

Hundreds of local people took part on searches in the days following the 47-year-old’s disappearance, but on Wednesday they were told by the PSNI that their assistance was no longer needed.

A PSNI spokesperson told that they are following a definite line of inquiry and that the search is now focused entirely on the sea.

Dive teams have now joined the search for any sign of Ms Coyles, whose car was found outside the gates of the camogie club in Ballycastle on Monday morning. The alarm was raised when she didn’t show up for work at the University of Ulster on Monday morning.
