Blathnaid Timothy.

A fresh appeal was made last night for information relating to the whereabouts of missing Glenamaddy woman Blathnaid Timothy.

Ms Timothy (33 ) has not been seen since CCTV cameras captured her withdrawing cash and hailing a taxi a fortnight ago last Tuesday.

er." Yesterday her brother Ronan spoke of the anguish her family suffered over Christmas knowing that their sister was still not found and could be in harm.

He revealed his sister had planned to spend Christmas with his family in Mayo before she went missing on December 14 in Dublin.

He admitted the continued search for her was very tough, and said it had been particularly "poignant" because of the holiday season.

She was last seen by her flatmate at 10.30am at her home at Smith Hall, Camden Street, Dublin 2, on Tuesday, December 14. She was reported missing to gardai in Harcourt Terrace garda station on Friday, December 17.

Using CCTV footage from the city centre, gardai have established that she used her ATM card at the National Irish Bank at Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin at 8pm that Tuesday.

Immediately after withdrawing €60, she hailed a taxi on the street and got into what appears to be a black Mercedes, which drove west towards the city centre. Ms Timothy only has her ATM card with her, no phone and no change of clothes.

But despite an appeal to all taxi drivers and members of the public, she has not been seen since and no trace of the car has been found.

The evening of her disappearance Blathnaid was wearing a black three-quarter length wool coat over dark, possibly grey jeans and a scarf, possibly black and red.

Anyone who has any information is being urged to contact gardai at Harcourt Square Garda Station on 01-6669500.
