GARDAI in Louth are appealing for the public's help in tracing a missing teenage mother and her two children.
Cosmina Tersanschi, aged 16 and a Romanian national, was last seen with her two toddler daughters on Saturday in Dundalk.
Ms Tersanschi was wearing a black and grey jumper and a long brown skirt, but it is not known what her children -- two-year-old Rebecca and 11-month-old Rahaela -- were wearing.
They were last seen on Emer Terrace at 9.20am on Saturday, with the mother wheeling her children in a red double buggy.
The eldest daughter Rebecca has light brown hair, and a bad turn in her right eye -- she would sometimes wear glasses.
Gardai are appealing to anyone who may have seen Cosmina and her daughters to contact them in Dundalk on 042 9388400, or through the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or at any garda station.
