Welsh police confirmed the news that the second set of remains which had been found were also those of the missing woman.

POLICE IN WALES have confirmed that remains at a second location are those of missing Irishwoman Catherine Gowing.

Other remains, which had been found on 31 October had also been identified to be those of the missing vet.

The results have been passed to Catherine’s family.  As you can imagine this is a very difficult time for them.   They continue to be supported by specialist officers and are being kept fully updated with the progress of the investigation.

Police are continuing to appeal for any information regarding sightings of Catherine Gowing’s Irish registered Renault Clio 00D 99970 and Clive Sharp’s black Volvo S40 AG58 JHE since Friday 12 October and particularly in the Sealand and River Dee areas.
