Bray People - - Bray People - Paula BURNS

PSY­CHICS are help­ing Gar­dai in Bray in their their search for the bodies of three miss­ing woman.

Cold-case team de­tec­tives are now analysing what they have been told by the psy­chics be­fore any de­ci­sion is made to search ar­eas of County Wick­low where the re­mains may be found.

Fol­low­ing a cold­case re­view of the dis­ap­pear­ance of Amer­i­can stu­dent An­nie McCar­rick, Kilkenny woman JoJo Dullard and Louth woman Pri­cilla Clarke it was rec­om­mended that a full rein­ves­ti­ga­tion of the cases be made.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Frank Keena­han, who is lead­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion team at Bray, said the psy­chic in­for­ma­tion was cur­rently be­ing stud­ied.

Sev­eral sites in the county have been high­lighted, among them pos­si­ble ar­eas where Jo Jo Dullard may be buried.

‘Peo­ple have nom­i­nated sites to us and an anal­y­sis of that in­for­ma­tion with other in­for­ma­tion that we have gath­ered is be­ing re­viewed and from this we will make a de­ci­sion,’ said Det. Insp. Keena­han.

At present the in­ves­ti­ga­tion team have no plans to search a par­tic­u­lar area.

Since the rein­ves­ti­ga­tion opened this sum­mer Gar­daí at Bray have in­ter­viewed two peo­ple in con­nec­tion with the An­nie McCar­rick case.

‘Fol­low­ing a pro­gramme on the miss­ing women on RTE the pub­lic have passed on in­for­ma­tion that led to two peo­ple who lived in the Wick­low area at the time of An­nie McCar­rick’s dis­ap­pear­ance be­ing in­ter­viewed.

Th­ese peo­ple were not un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion but were sim­ply giv­ing us some fur­ther in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to the case.’ Gar­daí be­lieve Ms McCar­rick was last seen in John­nie Fox’s pub in Glen­cullen, on March 26, 1993.

She had been liv­ing in Sandy­mount, south Dublin.

JoJo Dullard went miss­ing on Novem­ber 9, 1995, as she was about to hitch a lift from Moone, Co Kil­dare, to her home in Cal­lan, Co Kilkenny.

She was mak­ing her way home from Dublin.

She was aged 21 at the time and was train- ing to be a beau­ti­cian.

25-year-old Priscilla Clarke went miss­ing on May 3, 1988, at Pow­er­scourt, En­niskerry.

She was out horse-rid­ing with Lynda Ka­vanagh, the Amer­i­can-born wife of Ir­ish prop­erty ty­coon and busi­ness­man Mark Ka­vanagh.

Ms Clarke worked for the Ka­vanaghs as a child­min­der.

Gar­daí be­lieve the two women were swept away in the flooded river Dar­gle as their horses were cross­ing the wa­ter af­ter days of heavy rain.

Ms Ka­vanagh’s re­mains were found two days later, but Ms Clarke’s re­mains were never found.
