Ms Delaney was last seen in the early hours of Saturday, July 11th, a week ago, at her home in Avondale Court, Blackrock, South County Dublin.

She was last seen at her home at approximately 3.30am last Saturday. She is 5ft 4in in height, of slight build with blonde/grey hair and blue eyes.

Taxi drivers are anybody who was near to Blackrock Village between the hours of 3am and 8am on Saturday last and who many have seen a woman fitting Ms Delaney's description are urged to contact gardai. Ms Delaney is believed to have been wearing a black hooded three quarter length Duffle type coat and black gloes.

Last week, Emer Delaney, a daughter of Breda Delaney, said local gardai were examining many CCTV cameras in the area in the hope of detecting images of her mother.

Emer renewed her appeal to taxi drivers and other early morning road-users who may have seen her mother.

Breda Delaney (72) is a retired university lecturer.

"My mother was very, very severely depressed and very, very anxious and may not have been acting normally," Emer said.

She has not ruled out the possibility she could have travelled to the UK.

The emphasis of the searches was on coastal and wooded areas of Dublin and Wicklow and there is also the possibility she could have gone to the south east as she is originally from Ferrybank in Waterford.

Teams of volunteers have been helping with the search for Ms Delaney.

A meeting of volunteers helping in the search took place at Dun Laoghaire library last night.
