A crack team from the US will travel to Ireland later this year in a bid to solve the mystery 1993 disappearance of American tourist Annie McCarrick.

Ms McCarrick was 26 when she was last seen taking a bus to Enniskerry. Her father John, who spent years trying to find out what happened to her, died in 2009 with no answers.

Now, a lawyer he hired in 1993 to help with the investigation into her disappearance has joined forces with a former FBI agent and Ms McCarrick's uncle, John Covell, to try to finally solve the mystery. The men have identified a prime suspect and are hoping to obtain access to the cold case file on the initial investigation.
