Search for body of girl expands

A SEARCH for the body of a missing Romanian teenager, feared to have been shot dead by a Dublin criminal, continued yesterday.

Additional personnel were drafted into the search area in the west-Wicklow mountainside as they looked for the remains of Marioara Rostas, who was 18 when she went missing in January 2008.

Gardai believe she was abducted, murdered and her body dumped.

Their search switched this week to the Kippure estate, off the road between Manor Kilbride and the Sally Gap.
