GARDAÍ HAVE CONFIRMED that the skeletal remains discovered last week in a Dublin park are those of missing woman Bernie Gavan.

The 59 year old woman’s remains were discovered last Wednesday underneath an electricity pylon at Tolka Valley Park in Finglas by children searching for a lost football.

Her remains have been released to her family to be buried, RTE reports today.

Bernie was last seen by her family on 19 August 2007, and went missing from the Ballymun Road area of Dublin. Gardaí say no foul play is suspected in her death.
