Appeal renewed for woman last seen in Howth

A photograph of a scarf that Bláthnaid Timothy was believed to be wearing as a headscarf has been released in hope of people remembing the night she went missing.

“We are also still appealing for people who were in the Howth Village – Harbour Road – Howth Pier area on the evening of Tuesday the December 14 from 8.30pm onwards and who may have seen Bláthnaid or any lone female out walking to contact us,” said Sergeant Gerry Curley of the Garda press office.

Curley said: “Emergency services were dealing with an incident on the West Pier from about 8pm onwards that evening  and the Howth Yacht Club AGM was on so we are aware that there were people in the area who may have seen something that they should make us aware of.”

Anybody with infromation should contact Gardai at Harcourt Terrace on 01 6669500, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

Gardai say that the scarf — called a “Dogtooth” scarf — is from retailer Warehouse and it would have been slightly frayed from wear and tear.

Bláthnaid is described as 5’6’’, with medium length dark brown hair, with a thin build and a pale complexion.  She is believed to have been wearing a ¾ length black wool jacket.

She got a taxi from the Dublin Docklands to Howth, Gardai have said they are satisfied that the last known sighting of Blathnaid is on Harbour Road in Howth Village at 8.30pm.
