The husband of a missing woman has made an emotional appeal for her to get in touch with gardaí, three months after she was last seen.

Tina Satchwell (45) went missing from her home in Youghal on March 20 and Richard Satchwell will appear on RTÉ's 'CrimeCall' tonight in a bid to track her down.

Mr Satchwell will describe the last time he saw his wife.

"She came downstairs. I gave her a cup of tea and a slice of toast. Then she asked if I'd go over to Dungarvan. I gave her a peck, and said I'd see her in a couple of hours," he said.

He returned to find she was not there but her two dogs, Ruby and Heidi, were, which was strange as the 45-year-old brought the dogs everywhere.

He contacted gardaí four days later after receiving no information from Mrs Satchwell or from her family.

"Tina come home, there's nobody mad at you. My arms are open. The pets are missing you," he said.

Mr Satchwell said he "just can't go on not knowing" and has pleaded for his wife or anyone with information on her location to contact gardaí.

Mr Satchwell has asked his wife to "let people know that you're alright".

Her aunt, Margaret Maher, told RTÉ that it is very unusual for her niece not to have contacted her family.

"It's very out of character for her. I wouldn't feel she'd go anywhere on her own. She's not a person who would do that.

"All the family have been contacted and no one in the family has seen or heard from her," she said. Her cousin Sarah Howard describes her on the programme as a girl who "loved her fashion".
