Australian police renew appeal for missing second-generation Irish woman
Sarah Cafferkey, whose family is from Achill Island, has not been seen for a week.

POLICE IN AUSTRALIA have renewed their appeal for information on a missing woman with Irish family connections who has not been seen for over a week.

Sarah Cafferkey, who has family connections to Achill Island, was last seen at her home on Ross Street in Bacchus Marsh, about 30 miles west of Melbourne, last Friday night.

The appeal comes after Sarah’s car, a silver Astra, was located in the Melbourne suburb of Maribyrnong last night.

Police believe Sarah had left to go out with friends last Friday night, but has not been seen since.

She is described as being 5’5″ in height and of thin build. She is of a fair complexion, with straight black shoulder-length hair and green eyes. It is not known what she was last seen wearing.

Police are particularly concerned for her welfare because of a medical condition which requires regular medication.

They have asked anyone who may have seen Sarah, or noticed any activity relating to her car – which was located on Owen Street – to contact them.

Readers in Australia who may have information on Sarah’s whereabouts are asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.
