Smiles of loving mum who simply vanished

THESE family snaps show adoring mum Esra Uyrun in the days and weeks before she disappeared.

The family of the missing Turkish woman have released dozens of photos to the Herald in the hope that it will provide some link to how she went missing.

Esra (38) left her home in Clondalkin at 7.15am on February 28 and disappeared without a trace. The mum-of-one's purse was found in the boot of her car when it was discovered in Bray -- her coat and bag were still at her home.

But despite a massive land and sea search, there have been no major breakthroughs.

The stunning young woman poses confidently in these pictures with her baby boy Emin (2) and loving husband Ozgur.

Her sister Berna, who lives in the UK, told the Herald they are hoping for key details from a Skoda driver who was in a near collision with Esra's car on the morning she disappeared.

"We still have nothing, it's as if we are still on day one, we have no clues no answers," she said. "The gardai did a road stop last Wednesday between 7.30am and 9am, stopping all the cars that came down the road and still no information.

"It will be seven weeks Wednesday and we are all going out of our minds."

Berna has also created a YouTube video with images of Esra with her family and friends. The pictures show the outgoing young woman as she took part in fundraising activities for local charities, went on holidays with her family and posed with pals.


Berna said: "I don't know what else to try anymore."
