ABOUT 80 PEOPLE are taking part in today’s volunteer search for missing woman Monica Riordan who has not been seen since 20 December.

Search and rescue teams, as well as members of the Garda Diving Unit, are combing the River Liffey looking for signs of the 39-year-old.

They are being assisted by teams of colleagues and friends of the Riordan family and members of the Civil Defence.

Riordan was last seen in the Pearse Street/Macken Street area of Dublin’s city centre at about 5pm on 20 December.

She had walked along Macken Street from under the railway bridge towards the junction with Pearse Street and appeared to be disoriented and confused at the time.

Riordan is described as being of average height, slim build and with shoulder-length blonde hair. When last seen, she was wearing a hooded long grey coat, dark jeans and grey or white trainers.
