Gardai have stated that they wish to make it clear that searches taking place in Kingscourt, Co. Cavan are not in connection with the ongoing search for Ciara Breen.
The searches in Kingscourt are “part of an ongoing operation” according to the gardai and not linked to Ciara Breen’s disappearance.
Ciara has been missing since February 13th 1997. On Monday a 60 year-old man was arrested by Gardai on suspicion of withholding information from Gardai, he was later released without charge.
The search in the Balmer’s Bog area, which began last week following a tip-off to Gardai, remains ongoing.
