A body has been found in the search for missing Dublin woman Sinead Pugh.

The 44-year-old special needs assistant had been reported missing from her home at Daletree View, Ballycullen, on Thursday morning.

Her family said she left home around 8am but failed to show up for work at a primary school 10 minutes away.

To aid search efforts, the family had released a photograph of the car Sinead was last seen driving in the hopes of finding the mother-of-four.

The missing woman’s four daughters, ages 14 to 26, have been assisted by Gardai in the search.

Two of her daughters turned to social media on Saturday night to thank those who had helped in the search but to share news "nobody wanted".

"Thanks so much for everybody's kind words & help, the amount of people out searching this morning was amazing,️ unfortunately the news nobody wanted has arrived," her eldest daughter Orlagh (26) said in a Facebook post.

Her sister Bronwyn also turned to social media with a similar message. "Love you so much Mam sleep tight xx"
