Appeal for help to find missing woman

Grainne Cunningham

THIS is the last known sighting of a 33-year-old woman who has been missing for a week today.

The family of Blathnaid Timothy, her friends and the gardai "have grave concerns for her safety", a statement released yesterday said.

The young woman was last seen by her flatmate at her home at Smith Hall, Camden Street, Dublin 2 last 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 2 at 8pm that Tuesday.

After using the ATM, she immediately hailed a taxi. The taxi, which appears to be a black Mercedes, drove west towards the city centre.

That evening, Blaithnaid was wearing a black three-quarter length wool coat over dark, possibly grey jeans and a scarf, possibly black and red. Her medium length dark brown hair was pulled up in a pony tail.

She is described as 5'6'' and of thin build with a pale complexion.

Gardai would like to make contact with the taxi driver.

Anyone with information is asked to contact any garda station.
