    Have just found that wfgodot had previously posted an article about Ireland's "vanishing triangle"

    Also another article with photos of the missing women...

    Amy Bradley has been missing since March 24th, 1998. She went on a cruise with her family and disappeared in the early hours of that morning. There have been various sightings of her reported since then. Please help us bring this lady home.

    The case of missing Newbridge teenager Deirdre Jacob, who disappeared 16 years ago, has been taken up for review by the Serious Crime Review Team of the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

    Deirdre, a student teacher, went missing from outside her home in Roseberry 16 years ago on Monday, July 28 1998 while walking home from Newbridge at 3.06pm. She was 18-years-old at the time...

    “It is a fresh set of eyes looking at the case and perhaps something new will come out of it. The family have never stopped searching for Deirdre. The last sighting of Deirdre was at 3pm outside the entrance to her home in Roseberry. We are renewing our appeal to any person with any information who may be thinking of contacting the gardai but have not done so, or are waiting for the gardai to contact them.”

    My family knew her family, and as a kid I used to play with her when we visited with relations. I still cannot believe this is un-solved. How her family have suffered...

    The Irish Vanishing Triangle is very sad. It's very strange that not one of them have been found. Literally vanished into thin air. If I remember correctly Deirdre was seen walking just into the entrance of her home but never made it home. The only suspect in the vanishing triangle has denied any involvement but while he was in prison for ten years for rape and attempted murder no one else vanished. The Gardai have stated that they believe he is responsible for at least 3 of the missing women and have questioned him intensely but he has denied any involvement. It would be superb if one day these cases were solved. It's scary to think there may be a serial killer walking among us right now.

    Yes, Deirdre was last seen at the entrance to her house. He had been doing some work on her grandmother's shop too, so he had been in the area.

    Unfortunately, his sentence was way too lenient. In the US, kidnapping and rape would have netted at least 20 years. Here, he was free to leave after 7. This is despite us all knowing that he is an extreme danger to women.

    Apparently he is in London now.

    Wow, can't believe they have made an arrest, that is amazing. I hope justice can finally be served for this beautiful young woman and her unborn child. And IMO I think this woman does deserve her own thread on here. Thank you for posting the link

    I wonder though is it the same suspect they have always had, in his 40's in probation and on bail and emigrated. Can't be that much of a coincidence but stranger things have happened, I will be glued to the news for the next few days.

    From irish news coverage, it appears a woman has given information on the case. The suspect is her former partner. http://www.independent.ie/tablet/new...-30655224.html

    Perhaps we should start a new thread for fiona.

    More information coming through slowly... yeah I also read it is his former girlfriend that came forward and that she is in protective custody for her own safety.

    Gardai are also expected to begin digging at a new site in the midlands for the remains of Offaly woman, who has been missing, presumed murdered, for more than 18 years.

    http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-30655131.html

    Yes, I wonder if it's possible we could make a new thread for her. I'm new here so I'm unsure of how it works, may we make a new thread for Fiona MODS?

    Kind regards,

    Sinead.
