Pauline Lynch (67) from Dalkey in south Dublin was wearing a lime green coat and grey trousers when she was last seen leaving her home yesterday afternoon.

Her daughter Liz D'Arcy said she is extremely concerned as a special GPS tracker located in the lining of her mother's handbag has been "knocked off."

"She left the house today at 3.50pm and she wouldn't normally be motivated to go out so that in itself was a concern.

"But her mobile is also off at the moment. She has a GPS tracker which I put in the lining of her handbag but it seems it's been knocked off," she told the Irish Independent.

She said the system was tested and working well last weekend.

"It has a SIM card in it and we can normally ring the GPS tracker and it tells us where she is on Google Maps.

"She's very fit and walks very fast and looks like she's walking with a purpose. She could chat with someone and appear very together, but she's not, so it's deceptive."

Pauline is described as 5ft 1in tall, of slight build with grey shoulder length hair. Anyone with information should contact gardai on 01 666 5000.
