Missing Amy's mother seeks fresh search
THE mother of missing teenager Amy Fitzpatrick has urged gardai to ask Spanish police to search an area in the Costa del Sol close to where she disappeared almost four years ago.
The Dublin 15-year-old went missing from the family's Spanish home in Calahona, Costa del Sol, on New Year's Day 2008. Despite widespread searches, she has never been found.
Her mother Audrey Fitzpatrick and her partner Dave Mahon made their appeal following a meeting at Garda Headquarters in Dublin.
Mr Mahon said afterwards that they both now believe Amy is dead and want gardai and Spanish police to search an address on the Costa del Sol, including digging in the garden, and to question a man they suspect is responsible for Amy's disappearance.
