Today, SaturdayJuly 28 is the 14th anniversary of the disappearance of missing Newbridge student Deirdre Jacob.

The young student vanished yards from her home in Roseberry, Newbridge, on July 28, 1998.

She paid a visit to the post office on Main Street that day and walked back towards the family home in Roseberry she shared with mum Bernie, dad Michael and younger sister Ciara.

Then, after the last confirmed sighting of her at a few minutes after 3pm, Deirdre vanished.

The small brunette was wearing a navy blue jumper and jeans, and carrying the distinctive ‘CAT’ bag that was to become a familiar sight.

Gardai are using the anniversary as a way of highlighting the case and keeping Deirdre in the public consciousness in the hope that somebody will come forward with a missing piece of information that might solve the case.

If anyone has any information, call Gardai in confidence on 1800 25 00 25 or Newbridge Garda Station on 045 431212.
