A woman who has been missing from her Dublin home for almost two weeks has returned home, putting an end to the worry and anguish of her family and friends.

Ciara Farrell (45) had been reported missing after she left St Vincents Hospital in Mount Merrion on Tuesday November 14.

Her phone was not answered, and there was no sightings of her at her address in nearby Kilmacud.

On Friday November 17 two witnesses who know Ciara to see said they saw her talking to a taxi driver at the junction of South Avenue and Lower Kilmacud Road.

She appeared to be carrying a bag, but there was doubt as to whether she got into the taxi or not.

Family and friends began frantically searching for Ciara, a mother of a six year old girl and a grown up daughter in her 20s.

Ciara’s car was then found outside a florists shop on The Rise in Mount Merrion at the weekend.

Gardai had it towed away for a technical examination on Sunday.

Those close to her were about to issue a fresh appeal for information yesterday, hoping the taxi driver that she was seen talking to might come forward, but then Ciara turned up at her parent’s house in Goatstown late this afternoon.

A garda spokesman said in a statement: "Ciara Farrell (45) who was missing from Dublin since 14th November, 2017 has been located safe and well.

"Thank you for your assistance."
