Gardai have issued a fresh appeal for information about a mother who went missing seven years ago today.

Esra Uyrun (38) has not been seen since she left her home at Collinstown Grove in Clondalkin, Dublin at around 7.15am on February 23 2011 to go to the shop and buy milk.

She was driving her family car, a grey Renault Twingo, registration number 08-D-23067, which was later found on the promenade in Bray, Co Wicklow.

Mother-of-one Esra is described as being 5’3” in height, with dark hair and green eyes.

When last seen she was wearing black leggings, white Nike trainers, and a dark top.

None of her bank cards have been used and there have been no confirmed sightings of her since she went missing.

Her older sister Berna Fidan has previously pleaded for information about Esra's disappearance.

"I'm begging for some news. I'm begging for someone to come forward.

"It gets harder and harder as time goes on. In my heart I can't convince myself she's dead without a body," Berna told

Berna also said that she does not believe that her sister died by suicide.

She explained: "I don't believe she just got up and left. She had made plans for the near future.

"People have suggested that she was depressed and may have taken her own life but I don't believe that. Somebody has done something to her."

Esra's family are seeking to locate her and are asking anyone with information to contact Ronanstown Garda Station 01 6667700, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
