GARDAÍ ARE ASSISTING Welsh Police in identifying a body that may be that of a missing Irish woman.

Pauline Finlay has been missing since 1994.

She disappeared from a beach near Kilmuckridge in County Wexford where she was walking her dogs.

It is believed she drowned, but her body was never recovered.

North Wales Police has contacted gardaí, sources say, as an investigation into 17 unidentified bodies found in the area.

Gardaí believe that the body of a woman who washed up in the town of Aberfrow near Holyhead in 1994 may be that of Pauline Finlay.

It is believed that a DNA comparison between the body and that of Finlay’s family has been undertaken.
