A lone officer stood guard at the dig site of what could prove to be Trevor Deely's grave yesterday, as the search for the missing man intensified.

The continuous flow of gardaí entering the sealed-off woodland in Chapelizod was an indication of just how extensive their search has become. A black canvas stretching across the site, along with a significant density of trees, separated the high-profile operation from the Lucan Road. At one stage, several large empty bins were taken off a truck and pushed onto the site.

Members of An Garda Síochána arrived, mostly in unmarked garda cars, to assess the area and make preparations for the dig.
