    UK - Catherine Gowing, 37, Queensferry, Wales; 12 Oct 2012

    Catherine Gowing: sister appeal to find missing vet (BBC News)
    The sister of a vet who is missing feared murdered has appealed for help in trying to find her.

    Catherine Gowing, 37, originally from Ireland, was last seen at a supermarket in Flintshire last Friday.
    ---
    A 46-year-old Gwynedd man was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of murder and police have been given a 36-hour extension to question him.
    ---
    Emma Gowing urged [the public] to look as they drive and check local streets, garages and waste land.

    "Catherine is a kind, sensitive, beautiful person," she added.
    ---
    Concerned colleagues of Miss Gowing called police after one received part of a phone text message.

    At the press conference on Thursday, Det Supt John Hanson said mobile phone records were one of the lines of inquiry officers were following.

    Police say Miss Gowing was seen entering Asda in Queensferry at 20:06 BST and leaving just over half an hour later.

    Senior officers say they fear Catherine Gowing, 37, a vet, has come to "significant harm".

    Det Supt John Hanson said initial inquiries resulted in the identification of a 46-year-old Gwynedd man who "frequents the New Brighton area and is known to Catherine."

    Thankyou for starting this discussion. I live in North Wales, and can't believe i only heard about this today on the Welsh News. I've looked for local updates on this story but there is no new information that isn't already mentioned in the above link. I wonder who they have in custody? I'm really hoping Catherine is found soon.

    I came across the story looking for updates on April Jones. It is a terrible business.

    Not much - if anything - new here but a long article (with the usual editing shambles Mail's readers have come to know):

    Half a text then nothing: Sister weeps as police reveal final message from missing vet (Daily Mail)
    ---
    David Evans, owner of the veterinary practice where Ms Gowing has been based for 18 months, said staff became worried after receiving the text at the weekend.

    'One of the nurses was concerned about her on Saturday or Sunday because she had half a message from her, from her mobile phone anyway,' Mr Evans said.

    'We thought, since her car was missing, we thought maybe she had gone somewhere for the weekend or got into some difficulty or something like that.'
    ---
    I wonder what that half a text message said.

    Thank you OP, I tried to start this but I don't think I have enough posts to start a thread. Here's another link

    Irish Independent


    Police now say the last known sighting of the 37-year-old was at an Asda supermarket in Queensferry last Friday evening.

    They say Ms Gowing entered the supermarket shortly after 8pm and left at 8.40pm.

    Detectives said she was alone at the time.

    Police said she was wearing blue jeans, a light brown khaki fleece zipped top, and plain black flat shoes. Her hair was tied up.

    She was carrying a plastic Asda bag and a pizza-type box.

    Officers said a forensic examination continues at her home this afternoon.

    Detectives confirmed that co-ordinated searches are taking place at various locations in an attempt to find Catherine, her car - a plum burgundy coloured Renault Clio, 00D99970 - and personal items that are missing from her home.

    They also confirmed that they are examining CCTV in the area.

    Catherine Gowing, who is originally from Co Offaly, has been living near Mold, Flintshire, for the past few years.

    Her mobile sent half a message to a nurse who worked with her at the Evans Veterinary Practice in the town of Mold some time after she went missing.

    Was wondering the same thing.
    This is too much like deja vu after Jill Meagher here in Oz. :-(

    I too saw this on the April Jones thread. So sad.

    It seems the suspect was known to Catherine.

    "Mr Hanson said initial inquiries resulted in the identification of a 46-year-old Gwynedd man who "frequents the New Brighton area and is known to Catherine". "

    Hm. Interesting - she was possibly leaving Wales in a couple months and, possibly, that possibility might not have set well with someone.

    Catherine Gowing: Car found in hunt for missing vet

    It has not yet been confirmed whether the vehicle belongs to Catherine Gowing, 37, originally from Ireland, last seen in Flintshire last Friday.

    But officers confirmed the vehicle found near her home in New Brighton, Flintshire, matched the description of Miss Gowing's Renault Clio.

    About bloody time they found the car, if it is Catherine's. Just 2 miles from her home?

    Can't help wondering if the fact 150 officers are involved in search for April Jones has left the Catherine Gowing investigation threadbare.

    http://www.southwalesargus.co.uk/new...arch___police/

    Superintendent Ian John said he could not rule out the ongoing search for April would extend into 2013.

    "We said goodbye to 150 officers this morning and they've been replaced by another 150 specialists," he said, speaking from Machynlleth.
