A new documentary claims to have uncovered 'new information' regarding the case of Fiona Sinnott, who disappeared without trace in 1998.

Fiona was just 19 when she went missing in Wexford.  She was last seen leaving her local pub Butler's in Broadway on February 8 that year.  At the time she had an 11-month-old daughter, Emma.

Despite thousands of hours of investigations by the gardai and her family and even one inspired by a psychic, no sign has ever been found of Fiona since she vanished.

In 2005 her case was upgraded to a murder investigation and six people were arrested and released without charge.

Missing: Fiona Sinnott: True Lives, which will air on Virgin Media One on Wednesday, includes exclusive access to Fiona's medical records, which documentary makers claim "indicates she was a victim of domestic abuse".

Also in the documentary, detective Alan Bailey revisits the area where Fiona was last seen and describes the case as one of the most solvable cases in Ireland.

The filmmakers have been working with Fiona's family on the programme for the past 18 months and in the film they open up about Fiona and describe her life before her disappearance. 

They revisit her old home and follow new leads and tip offs in the hope of finally finding the truth and they also share home footage of Fiona for the first time.

Fiona's landlord, her friends, and people in the wider community are also interviewed for the documentary.

Missing: Fiona Sinnott: True Lives airs on Wednesday, May 1 at 9pm on Virgin Media One.
