Police renew witness plea in missing Irish vet case

North Wales Police has renewed its plea for witnesses in the case of missing Irish vet Catherine Gowing after human remains were found in a field in Sealand, Flintshire.

This development came about as the result of information from the local community, for which I am very grateful.

However, I am once again asking for their assistance.

The search for evidence relating to Catherine's disappearance continues and I am very eager to hear of any sightings of her Irish-registered Renault Clio 00D 99970 and Sharp's black Volvo S40 AG58 JHE since Friday October 12, and particularly in the Sealand area.

In fact, I would like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity in fields in Manor Road, Sealand, to contact police on 101.

– Senior Investigating Officer DCI Mark Pierce, North Wales Police
